Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

I go the market at home once a week for fruit & veg. I have those old fashioned net bags. I get them to weigh the stuff in their own plastic bowls then they just tip it from the bowl into my net bag.

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

My friend sent me an email about non plastic toothbrushes and cottonbuds. They are instead made of bamboo. They were too pricey still for me. But like others said... it's only a question of time and mass production before the price falls.

Re: Clean Hua Hin's beaches movement - Trash Hero

Mentalities (group mentalities) change slowly. But they do change. Look at smoking. 30 yrs ago I said it would be as frowned upon today as it is... few believed me. Similar with our attitudes in the west to our pets... neutering our cats, picking up after our dogs is slowly becoming the norm. I thin...

Re: Clean Hua Hin's beaches movement - Trash Hero

I hope this isn't too off topic... drove down to Dolphin Bay yesterday morning to watch the sunrise. Watched 2 young Thai women walk the beach and gather plastic rubbish while they walked. Seemingly some do care.

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

I read something in a Dutch paper this morning that the EU is looking to ban plastic straws, cottonbuds, forks and the like. Excellent move imo.

Re: Places to visit in Hua Hin

I read somewhere that it's thought that the babies are orange so that if they wander off in the foliage that the mother can easily spot them. Who knows? But yes they are so strange (and adorable :-)
