How to say NO in Thai to plastic bags…
Now, who watched that video without a smile on their face? No one, I’m betting!
Here are two more possibilities for saying NO to plastic bags: ไม่ใส่ถุง ครับ/ค่ะ /mâi sài tŭng kráp/kâ/ Or ไม่เอาถุง ครับ/ค่ะ /mâi ao tŭng kráp/kâ/
Thailand has an awful problem with plastic bags polluting the countryside and waterways and those at Trash Hero Ao Nang are certainly doing their bit.
If you can’t physically help out, get the attention of 7/11 (also known as Thailand’s Trashy Problem Child) via this online petition: You love Thailand: Demand 7/11 to stop polluting it.
