Clean the Beach Boot Camp takes on Nai Harn Beach on World Clean Up Day

Published

 on 

A very special Clean The Beach Boot Camp (CBBC) took place on last Saturday in support World Clean Up Day. In total, 170 people, including 120 students from the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism at the Prince of Songkla University in Kathu headed to Nai Harn Beach, one of the island’s favourites in the island’s south. 

Involving some 18 different nationalities, Krix Luther, the founder of CBBC and iBan Plastic, provided participants with a very active and fun workout before cleaning the beach. Now in its 7th year, CBBC has become a global movement, visiting beaches all over the world with the aim of keeping them and the oceans beautiful, clean and free of trash. 

In total, 35 large bin bags (180 kilograms) of various garbage was collected (mostly single-use plastic). Nai Harn Beach was left in a much cleaner state than when the volunteers arrived and, at the end of the beach clean-up, all participants were treated to a delicious, free burger, from Prime Burger in Patong, sponsored by the Phuket Expat Centre. 

Well done to everybody who took part in this epic CBBC, and a special well done to the 120 volunteer students from the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism at Phuket’s PSU.

Krix Luther looks forward to seeing people at the next Clean the Beach BootCamp to get involved and keep our beautiful beaches clean.

“You can help keep Thailand clean by saying no to single-use plastic.”
