MBRC Cleanup in Racha Noi (Thailand)

Cleanup Racha Noi, Thailand

In 2020, we organised an ambitious Beach clean up at, what’s known to Phuket locals as, ‘Plastic Island’.

Tucked away in a quiet corner on the breathtaking island of Racha Noi near Phuket lies what locals call ‘Plastic Island’: one of the most plastic-polluted beaches in all of Thailand.

A 120-large crew of passionate ocean lovers gathered to pick up the plastic waste and bring the beach back to its former glory. All the waste was seperated, counted and weighed before being transported to a certified recycling factory in Bangkok. Here, all the recycable plastic waste was converted into plastic flakes.



Cleanup Coral Island Thailand

Take a trip to Phuket’s neighbour, Coral Island, and you’ll likely be greeted with pristine white-sand beaches, crystal clear water, snorkelling and whole lot of lounging in the sun. But walk just around the corner from the popular tourist beaches, and it’s a completely different story: once-white sands now covered in plastic waste for miles.With that, we organised a crew of 50+ supporters in February 2020 for a truly rewarding cleanup day – clearing 120 bags of waste in total, and delivering it to our partner recycling facility in Bangkok so it could be reused sustainably.
