Pattaya Mail...Family helps Pollution Solution Group clean beaches

Friday June 22 - June 28, 2012

Family helps clean beaches 


This past Sunday, June 17th, the Pollution Solution Group was removing broken parts and pieces of plastic and flotation foam from the swim buoys that are supposed to protect the swimmers but are now more dangerous then protective to swimmers, sea life, ocean craft, and ocean.

While we were working, a lovely family also began to help us; it was the Mr and Mrs How family from Sriracha, and their two sons, 20 year old Sukrit and his younger brother, visiting Jomtien Beach.

They shared their concerns on what a mess the beach and ocean was.

Surkit goes to the Faculty of Fisheries, Kasetsart University in Sriracha. Realizing his studies and our mission were so closely related, we asked Sukrit if he would like to take the PBS Thai documentary video about beach & ocean pollution and our posters (to school).

We asked Surkit to ask teachers to please share the informative PBS Thai and English documentary and to please, make enough copies of the posters to give to each student to take home and share with their families.

We put the ball in this smart young mans court, now only time will tell.

Thank you,

Gerry Rasmus
