A memorandum of understanding (MoU) detailing the Proud Kamala Project was finalised yesterday (Aug 27) at a signing ceremony between Kamala Subdistrict Administrative Organization and the InterContinental Phuket Resort.

The project will focus on collecting garbage at Kamala Beach to help preserve the natural beauty and cleanliness along the 3km stretch.

Discarded garbage is an ongong challenge across the island and an issue that continues on a daily basis at Kamala Beach. It is hoped that the Proud Kamala Project can serve as an example of how public and private sector entities can work together to improve and maintain the local environment to showcase to locals and international tourists alike.

There are several large hotels on or near the beach which use their proximity to attract, and then overcharge tourists. They should all be made responsible for clean-ups and putting out bins.

The long term solution to garbage is to NOT clean it up but let it encrust every inch to a depth of 30 cm  and THEN maybe  people will stop throwing it  on the ground. Cleaning up after people who refuse to behave irresponsibly just reinforces their carelessness.

The whole island needs a damn good clean up, not just certain beaches or towns. Let's be honest, the place is a pig sty. On the surface it 'appears' fairly clean but look behind the facade and there is garbage everywhere. (And I'm not just talking about the standard of tourists coming here now:-). Garbage coming to look at garbage. Seems fitting!

Pardon the cynicism, because I'm glad that someone will be cleaning up after all the trash-throwing slobs. Hopefully they train the new Burmese slaves how to get plastic and small problematic debris, and not stuff plastic bags full of leaves, palm fronds and coconut shells. Now, when is the Intercon going to cough up some baht to help solve the filthy water flowing into the ocean issue?
