Paradise Lost. Trash is everywhere in Thailand. 

I think one of the overlooked causes is what has been total lack of municipal garbage services outside of the main cities and towns. They are getting more wide spread now but the consequences of this have been a nation that thinks chucking it is the "natural" way because its the only way. The results are terrible.

Sorry should have read "garbage" not garage

Chief Weerasak Srijatjang said that trash blown in off the sea was normal at this time of the year even if it was especially bad in the last few days. 

Since when has trash in the sea become "normal". It is amazing how moronic official Thai communication can be. Fully dysfunctional place.

Why oh why do tourists and other foreigners get involved in this kind of clear up?  If the Thais can't be bothered to clear things up when it is clearly their job,  I sure wouldn't help them do it, while they sit on their backsides doing very little.  All the tourists are doing is helping to ensure that the laziness of the National Park staff continues.   

Because there are also people who actually put action to their words instead of moaning all day on TV.

agree, most of the beach trash comes in on the tide from the ocean.  

the gulf of thailand beaches have more plastic, rope, polystyrene foam, glass, cans and net floaters than sand. 

agree, many thais either don't know or don't care about the environmental impact of their littering and seemingly do very little to stop it or clean it up...unless they get paid for doing it.

agree, most places here that are producing trash do not provide public trash cans. 
agree, my country looked like this 50 years ago and in some places it still does.

it's lack of awareness, knowledge, willingness and effort.  

is litter a class issue?
