This early 1970’s slogan in North America should now become the slogan for the prestigious holiday resort island of Koh Samui. Now, with millions of visitors stepping off the sandy beaches of Koh Samui and into the stunning blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand, there is a great danger of this 5-Star facility destination becoming a plastic bag and container graveyard.
There is only one solution for this issue that is growing by garbage bags full every day… Education. Internally the school systems that are in place are frantically educating their children on the necessities of proper disposal. Unfortunately, catastrophic remains lie on the beaches every day after a storm or high tides. As a visitor it is your responsibility to assist in the preservation of this island’s well-being, and we ask you humbly to help us. Refuse a bag at 7-11 or at a local grocery, and please…. Please…. Please dispose of your waste sensibly.
