All invited to cleanup Nai Harn Beach today

Published

 on 

PHUKET: Representatives of the Rawai and Nai Harn Business Community, along with staff and other members of the southern Phuket area, are invited to take part in the Nai Harn Beach cleanup from 3pm to 5pm today.

Drinking water, bags and gloves will be provided, so participants just need to show up to the beach and be ready to clean, explained Claude Baltes, the general manager of Sunsuri Phuket.

“We would like the local community to see that we are not only here to run our business, but also to help improve everybody’s quality of life. These kinds of events, apart from providing the benefits of a cleaner beach, are also important to break the ice between the community, businesses and local authorities,” Mr Baltes said.

This is the first community service project for the relaunched Nai Harn and Rawai Business Community group.

Today’s cleanup comes in the wake of a massively successful underwater cleanup off Karon Beach that saw more than 400 kilograms of trash collected (story here).
