About 100 Dongtan Beach vendors cleaned up the shoreline and collected garbage for Mother’s Day.
Manop Sakorn, chairman of Thai Massage Club of Dongtan Beach, led the Aug. 9 campaign, which collected 200 kilograms of rubbish, including foam boxes, plastic bottles and bags.
They hoped to raise the awareness of beachgoers about the need to keep the environment clean.
Manop said people should be more careful in only disposing of their garbage in proper receptacles.
He added that this would be the first of many regular beach cleanups by the group.
