On Saturday 8th November, 25 students from the International School of the Eastern Seaboard met up with the Green Pattaya volunteers and Rotary members to once again clean the Cosy Beach area. The plan was to get only small things but sadly the state of the beach and the sea was really bad and required everybody to do their very best for four hours. The sea was full of black residue, maybe from Loy Krathong the day before, but also plastic and other trash.
The three boats have been reduced to two boats due to the owner putting one on fire after City Hall officials warned her about the boats. The people around Cosy Beach have stop using the area as a garbage dump but there was still plastic buried in the mud from the grey waterfall.
Students dig deep to clean the drains.
For the first time ever we saw a family using the area for sunbathing so we are working in the right direction. When the rain stops, Green Pattaya will schedule another cleaning for the area up and hopefully the boats will be gone at that time.
The students were very active, removing large chunks of burnt boat parts and they also collected 25 bags of rubbish. Due to other engagements, City Hall could not come but they came after to pick up all the bags as usual.
The International School of the Eastern Seaboard enjoyed the day out and a new cleaning is planned for January 2015.
