Watch the video of the van crash from yesterday. The typical Thai idiot stumbling around having a drink of something. Then just casually tosses the empty can into the bushes. It is totally normal, ingrained behaviour. Something so natural that they don't even think twice about throwing their garbage wherever they like. Hopeless...

ematt - this is a forum for readers to post their opinion on news articles which they are entitled to do so, I find it very entertaining to read some of the whacky comments from the applogists like yourself, perhaps you are taking this a little too seriously!

For all of the farang posting here who think every news story is personally about them, I would point out that Go Eco Phuket is a Thai organisation. I'm sure they could not care less if you join them of not (or what you think about them, for that matter).

DK - Because the responsibility lies with the local population to stop trashing their own environment, until they take responsibility for their actions there is no point!

No No No ! Stop enabling this culture's filthy habits by cleaning up after it.  Let Thais reap what they have sown, they will not stop it otherwise.

Joining hands together for a clean up is always a good thing,yet some people question it again.Why isn't our marine life expert and Padi diver joining them instead of posting derogatory comments?

Thai Officials become professionals in asking for volunteer work. It is a great way to keep budgets out of the sun and make them disappear. It only costs a few t-shirts and caps. Oh, and a photo taking, of course. Plus the slogan: " To honor .."

Amazing, when they want you to do something for free, no work permit required!
