The countdown is on for this Saturday’s mega beach clean-up around the island of Phuket. The activities kick off at 8am at different venues around the island.
The Phuket Hotels Association have been active in investing in the island’s future. They have developed long-term environmental and educational programs to provide the foundation for ongoing development and sustainable success.
The PHA have launched the island’s first all-beach cleanup working with local governments and the private sector to keep Phuket’s beaches clean. ‘Keep Phuket Clean with our Hands and Hearts’ is a co-ordinated beach cleanup and community activity initiated by the Phuket Hotels Association’s Environmental & Sustainability Working Group members and is supported by the Phuket Governor and Tourism Authority of Thailand. Hotel members are each ‘hosting’ a beach and sponsoring cleaning supplies and refreshments on the day.
The commemoration of this event will take place on Karon Beach at 9am with the opening led by Phuket’s Governor, Noraphat Plodthong, the Director of TAT Phuket Office, Khun Kanokkittika Kritwutikon and President of the Phuket Hotels Association, Anthony Lark. The guest speaker will be Erik Anderson, Head of the Economic Section, Energy, Environment, Science, Technology and Health in the US Embassy, Bangkok.
