The Pollution Solution Group had the honor of meeting, 8, 2nd year students, form Thai-Austrian Technical College, on Sukhumvit Rd, Na Chom Thian, Sattahip, Chon Buri. They were taking a brake from studies, at Jomtien Beach.
We had just finished, removing broken swim buoy parts, spewed, all over the beach, ocean, feeling anger towards the people, in control of the beaches and ocean. We came across 8 young, well dressed students, sitting quietly, enjoying the fresh air, we regrouped, smiled, started slowly talking in our very bad Thai, some, understood our English.
We asked, if they were interested in a Thai documentary about the beaches, oceans and stray dogs, they all agreed, with a big smile. With complete pleasure, we gave them what we call, a school package, A PBS Thai DVD, Color posters starting with, young children, babies, under 2 years old, playing on the beach in and around, many foolish-lie discarded toxic cigarette-butts, bottle-caps, that they could, some do, ingest, choke, become very ill, (maybe die).
A Turtle with a plastic bag in his mouth, (dead) they mistake plastic, for Jellyfish, which they eat, (choke to a horrible death)
A Dead Seabird, in her stomach, disposable lighters, bottle-caps, cigarette butts, none of which digest, fill her up, dies a very painful death, her Chicks also die.
Storm Drain information, letting people know, that our "Life's Blood Is Water" and that is all, that should go into a "Storm Drain, Rain Water"
One of our main posters which we pass out daily, to many people, that are either interested, or need to read and understand, in Thai and English, It says
"NO BUTTS-NO GARBAGE" "GOES TO OCEAN"
"KEEP IT CLEAN FOR THE KING" "AND SAFE FOR THE CHILDREN"

How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment, before starting to improve the world, we are never to young or old to make a difference, no matter how Big or small, we earn inner-wealth, by giving back. We are all in this neighborhood together. Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, Now is the Only Time there Is. (Please Make A Difference, Starting Today)
There are many Thais and Farangs that do care and are making a difference, We thank you and hope more, start to surface.
Kapun Kup, Mahalo Nui Loa, Thank You Very Much.
