Thai national park sends rubbish back to tourists.
I wouldn't leave it there in the first place.
I think it's a clever gimmick to catch attention. They'll probably do a few packages and it'll raise awareness about not littering, which has to be a good thing?
Such cynicism in one so young!!
I was struck by this:
“littering in a national park is an offence and punishable with up to five years in prison and hefty fines”
So not ‘guidance’ or exemptions or complicated ‘bubbles’. Just ‘Do It’ and this is ‘just’ for litter.
Maybe we could learn.........
"Such cynicism in one so young!!"
If only I was young...
How do they know its yours, I'd be miffed if someone else's rubbish was posted to me when I'd brought mine home.
Was thinking this too and no doubt it will be a pretty standard defence of most. If they sent me the wrong rubbish so to speak, I'd send it back under 'rubbish not known at this address'.
Would not surprise me if it is just a simple PR campaign and that few, if any packages are actually sent. Also, what will they write on the customs declarations? Old food and discarded underpants?
I am not sure the former can be sent by post anyhow?
Must have plenty of cash if can send it around the world after the offenders. Imagine if the Indians had to pick up their own rubbish off the floor. I Thailand although they have bins it seems the problem is in the reserves and animal sacturies where ther few disposal sites and the animals might digest the waste.
State of emergency, martial law, corruption and police brutality. No thanks.
