Not blowing in the wind



Re: Pattaya Beach a big ashtray (PM Baywatch Friday, 23 November 2012) – Aloha Baywatch. It is so refreshing to know that the Pollution Solution Group has not been blowing against the wind, standing alone, on Jomtien Beach for the past 11 years. We have put up and handed out thousands of informative posters in Thai and English, with pictures. We are now putting together posters in Russian. We have removed thousands upon thousands of toxic cigarette butts from the gutters and beaches, also assisting 4 mothers this past 11 years, 3 of their babies chocking on a toxic butt, 1 on a bottle cap. Fish also eat, some die and some we eat. Cigarette butts endanger children, wildlife and contaminate waterways and our soil. Imposing fines is the only thing that will work for the hardcore, I don’t care, kind of smokers. There are many smokers that do care, understand the dangers and dispose of their butts properly. Too many don’t know or care, they need a wake up call and fines will do that.
