Fifty volunteers from local companies, Green Pattaya, and Pattaya City Hall cleaned Cosy Beach of three truck loads of rubbish. The cleaning crew brought their own food to share, and food also was provided by Nova Group, Siam Bayview Hotels, and Green Leaf Hotels. Kingdom Property provided water.
A month earlier, Green Pattaya had removed a truck-load of rubbish from a Cozy Beach gully, from which a further three trucks of rubbish were carried away this time. The gully seems to invite beachgoers to deposit their refuse in the dip, which quickly appears to be a garbage dump. Even while the Green Pattaya team was having lunch, nearby tourists were discarding their rubbish in the gully.
Before the next clean-up, Green Pattaya will work with City Hall to erect signs and to talk with the people who make money from the beach. Volunteers are welcome to join the effort from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 5 at Cosy Beach with Radchada “Toy” Chomjinda, director of HHN Foundation Thailand.
