It has been almost a year since Trash Hero Hua Hin was started. They have already removed 1,332 kilograms of trash with the help of 330 volunteers in 43 cleanups. A special request from one Trash Hero: “To all the smokers on the beach; a request. I don’t mind your habit, done it myself for a long time, but please could you take your butts with you when you leave? Or collect them in a soda can or empty water bottle during the day? So much easier to dispense and the beaches will look so much better. Thank you in advance, cleaning up starts with you.” For more information and the weekly meeting point of Trash Hero Hua Hin and your opportunity to get involved, please see www.facebook.com/trashherohuahin.
