How we aim to resolve this problem:
Tackling this problem at the source would be ideal. However, this is a huge challenge as it involves money and power. Perhaps the “source” we are more able to work with are the small shops, restaurants and markets in our area to encourage reducing our plastic consumption and replacing it with reusable alternatives.
Goals and expected impact:
We are working on a “Phuket Plastic Road Map” plan with other organizations to reduce single-use plastics in Phuket. Our team will start in our village and expand the project to other areas in Maikhao.
