The Story
2 months 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 and Samui Bins work with Trash Hero to clean the beaches.

One Bin:  700 Baht.  

Paint supplies and transport :  800 Baht/Bin

Total: 1,500 Baht for each hand crafted bin.

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

We make no money from this.

Goal for now:

• 40 Garbage Bins (1500 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. Talented artists lead by Idania have 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 have matched 30,000 Baht here, so that should last long enough to get the program going.

ALL money goes to our Bins as well as other environmental and educational efforts to make Koh Samui a better place to live.

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.  

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.  They will be responsible for maintaining the bins and proper disposal.  We check on them regularly to see their progress.

Bins are now 1,500 Baht.  Sorry folks but the cost was more than anticipated.  We have 3 bins completed.  1 will go to the Elephant Sanctuary, one to the dog rescue and one to the beach in Bangrak.  Stay tuned as the bins are being placed.  Again, we make no money from this and we plan on getting them all over the island from responsible owners.  Thanks.

We have hit our goal and then some (31,170 Baht!).  An enormouse thanks to all who contributed.  New campaign coming soon.  We need to up the price to 1,500 Baht/bin as the costs were more than I thought.  Thanks again everyone.

The bins take time to paint of course.  10 are around the island and another 9 are in waiting.  The art work gets better and better.  Thank you everyone for your donations thus far.  We're going to just keep making them.  Starting soon, a special bin will be donated to The Elephant Sanctuary with an elephant theme, of course.

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.

Hua Thanon.  Thanks to Jenni Lipa, who wanted a place to put one of our bins in Hua Thanon.  Mission accomplished today.  Jenni donated and it happened.  Thank you Jenni.  Jenni is part of our larger group that is dedicated to make real change on Koh Samui.

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.
