On the 27th October 2015, Roman Peter from Trash Hero visited Koh Lanta to talk about the work of the organisation. He carried out a very informative presentation about the charity, which was started on Koh Lipe in 2013. It started out as a small community project with local dive professionals getting together to clean the beach. From there, it grew into something much bigger. They now have 10 chapters throughout Thailand and are looking to expand all the time.
They started an innovative project where local businesses offer stainless steel water bottles for sale. Each business that sells the bottles provides a free water refill service, meaning that anyone who invests in a bottle can easily fill up no matter where they bought it.
The bottle is a great reminder of your trip to Koh Lanta and a really effective way to make a genuine difference.
