The Story
1 month ago

Samui Clean : Our goal is to get the garbage off the beaches and spread the word in regards to keeping Koh Samui clean.  

Garbage cans do not exist on the beaches of Koh Samui.  We feel that people will respond better if garbage bins are available.  As it is now, people are simply leaving their rubbish on the beach.  

Samui Clean works with Trash Hero to clean the beaches.

One Bin:  700 Baht.  

Paint supplies and transport :  550 Baht/Bin

Total: 1,250 Baht for each hand crafted bin.

Logos or Name Recognition (hotels, restaurants, bars, etc.) possible.

We make no money from this.

Goal for now:

• 27 Garbage Bins (1,250 Baht each): To be placed at businesses on the beach as well as participating businesses aroung the island.  Including Choeng Mon, Bangrak, Thongson Bay Village, Lamai beaches, LaemSon, HuaThanon, and other hot spots that we find. A volunteer has offered to paint the bins with artwork (see Main photo) and friendly reminders to have people "Do Their Part", "Keep Samui Clean", "Respect The Beach etc...

I will match the 30,000 Baht here, so that should last long enough to get the program going.

ALL money goes directly to cleaning up the island.  

For now, all money will go towards bins/awareness. Many people pick up the rubbish but have no where to put it.  We're offering the bins (per your donation).  Hotels, restaurants, bars, etc. will agree to be responsible for removing the bags in the bins, and replacing them with new bags.  Donations also go toward free bins to communities that can't afford them.  We'll also supply trash bags to them on a regular basis.

Campaign funds will go towards purchasing the bins as well as paint supplies and bags.  We make zero money from this effort.

This is the first step in our campaign to clean up the island and educate everyone on the importance of a clean environment on Koh Samui.

Donations Without Getting a Bin

Poorer communities will get a donated bin.  We'll be responsible for supplying bags.  And we'll make sure someone maintains them.

Bin Donations are going well.  My Cafe, Bay Water Hotel, Get Beached, Marga Yoga, and Samui Tree House have all received bins.  We have also donated bins to Choeng Mon beach, and Hua Thanon (at the very end of the village).  We will be supplying the donated bins with trash bags.  Thanks to everyone so far for your contributions and donations.

A Huge Thanks to Susan Field, and Marc, Ben san, and Shane, and those that wish to remain anonymous.  With your help, we will get these bins all over the island.  They’re a huge hit and interest is growing fast.  Our first official order came in from Get Beached (Bangrak, great food, and incredible music).  Again, thanks everyone!

We cleaned Hua Thanon yesterday, October 29.  We gave all the kids Trash Hero shirts.  The best tool so far that I've seen.  The kids even made a game of it with "who could collect the most".  With your help we can supply the area with trash bins, literature, and signs (Burning Plastic Is Toxic, Don't Litter, in Thai of course,......etc.

These bins look lovely and I am sure children are attracted to them. I hope all hotels on the island will become engaged with this idea and let's make this a real feature for tourists and locals alike.
Great idea and lovely artwork,
