It is pretty obvious, but the increase in tourism and growing population along with other factors has led to a rise in rubbish washing up on our beaches. Many people are getting stuck in to help keeping Phangan clean. There are recycling projects, beach cleaning groups and events and the general mentality of the Island’s residents is positive.
Hinch from the Holy Grill is a veteran recycler, he turns things that he finds into full blown BBQ’s that you can fit a whole pig in! You also have Skunk and Jef at Jungle Experience who use motorcycle parts to create amazing sculptures. There is always something you can do to help, whether it is just taking your own bag to the shops to using containers for storage at home.
Phanganist went on a mission to the beach to see what they could find and how they could use the rubbish from the beach…
It didn’t take Phanganist long to find something, in fact it was there straight away. In amongst some wood, bamboo and other fishing stuff were glass bottles, cans, food packets etc.
Let us know if you have found some hidden treasure or something unusual while you do your bit for keeping Phangan clean. We don’t want to preach but this is something that is really very important but we need your ideas and help too!
We hope this article goes a small way to inspire you to help keep our beaches clean and join in what is a great social event with like minded people who want to keep this island as beautiful and clean as you do....:)
Phanganist will be out on the beach again this afternoon and doing their part on their beach and we hope you can do the same to yours.... )
