Second Keep Phuket Clean Day Set for July 2nd
After the success of the Summer in Phuket island wide beach clean up on May 28, a second initiative has been scheduled for Thursday July 2nd. Over 3,000 participants at 20 locations helped in May, and this one looks to be even bigger. Hotels, businesses, school and a number of concerned locals are all pitching in.
Tagged as "Keep Phuket Clean" more details can be obtained on the Summer in Phuket website and certainly despite the current tourism challenges its good to see the island acknowledge the importance of sustainable projects that improve the all important environment.
There looks to be not only short term actions such as clean up's but also waste management and more involvement from the government sectors especially at the municipal levels will see more proactive solutions to the issues of a strained infrastructure.
