A play on the phrase “ego-trip” refering to the superiority
on feels when going green, being green, or living green.
Militant recycling, composting, farmers markets, CSA shares,
organic food, solar panels, bio diesel, and the purchase of a
Prius or Smart Car can all trigger on eco-trip.
He thinks he is saving the enviroment single -
handedly because he bathes in collected rain
water instead of taking showers.
I know, he is on such an eco-trip.
In Ao Nang as well as across the whole Thailand exists a community called ‘Trash Hero’. It creates projects to remove existing waste and to reduce future waste by involving people into cleaning it and inspiring them for long-term careful behaviour. Everyone can be a Trash Hero.
Usually a big group people locals as well as tourists and volonteers gathers on saturday in the morning at Noppharat Thara beach and pick up trash no matter what kind it is. Whether it is a ciggarette buff or bottles they clean it! And as they say, actions speak louder than words. By spending just often hours together picking up trash, people can see the real world consequences of being careless about waste. So, get inspired by becoming Trash Heroes in your everyday lives. No matter where you are make up your own heroic clean-ups and reduce the amount of waste. Start being much on eco-trip!
