Keep Phuket Clean Now a Monthly Island-Wide Program

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 23 July 2009

The next island-wide Keep Phuket Clean effort has been set for Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 15:00 in 28 different locations around the island.

 Organizers expect over 5,000 volunteers at this month’s clean up and an even broader involvement from Phuket’s schools, charitable organizations, construction industry and local government. Future clean ups have been scheduled for the first Thursday of every month till December 2009.

Last month’s Keep Phuket Clean effort saw progress being achieved in new areas around the island.

 The fishing village on the south end of Bangtao which has been dramatically cleaned up with the support of the staff at the Amanpuri, will post signage and promote itself as the Bangtao Fish market – the west coast’s only fresh daily fish market.

 Other new locations include a Chalong focus, expansion into Phuket Town and the mangrove area of Kok Tanod. Importantly RPM, Boat Lagoon, Ao Po area and Yacht Haven have all been involved and are making plans to expand the coverage area.

“The community is getting behind this campaign and seeing real improvement in beach maintenance, public areas such as beach parking and there has been concerted efforts by the local Or Bor Tor in each location to improve waste management and support building public awareness,” said Nick Anthony spokesperson for the Summer in Phuket campaign. “The last three clean ups have been principally supported and co-ordinated by the hotels and we seek now to broaden the involvement into the community, and to continue to expand the monthly coverage. Phang Nga province is joining us on the 6th and will start both Natai Beach and Khao Lak regular cleanups. Phi Phi Island is also starting their campaign.”

The Keep Phuket Clean community outreach program’s goal, using education and private sector support, is to make the Phuket residents, hotels, small businesses and tourists more aware of the island’s fragile eco-system and the impact that we have on its flora, fauna and surrounding waters and marine reserves.

 The clean up at all key areas are all scheduled to start at 15:00 on Thursday, August 6, 2009. If the weather doesn’t cooperate the event will take place the following day on August 7th. Until December the groups will continue to meet every month, on the first Thursday of the month: September 3rd, October 1st, November 5th and December 3rd.
