Starting again in the early morning, 6am. Because of the sun, it is so strong later in the day. The school gives us two big bags of empty plastic bottles. They are so shiny and beautiful in contrast to our plastic waste bags. Before noon we are done. Taking a shower and leaving for Bangkok, having a rest after these long PLASTIC days.


So mutch plastic we have collected. Estimate 130 bags, mostly full of dirty useless plastic. It is the amount, what Nong Pho Village produces on half a day, statistically.

Today, the two workers set up the bamboo skeleton of the stupa. Impressive, bamboo is such a great material!

In the afternoon, the NPKD Kids Group come over. We want to collect plastic. Can we? Yes, yes…

Many children come to the temple this morning. They have a lesson in Buddhism. Before they start, they have lunch. Everything is packed in Plastic. At the end we collect 6 big bags. Some children help us. Without words, they understand: This is a lot of bad waste…

Every morning we collect plastic waste from the waste bins. 90% of the plastic is useless for recycling. It is plastic bags with food leftovers. It stinks …

Today, the NPKD Social Enterprise Kids Group is joining our activities. Together we put the „Separate Waste“ Stickers on many waste bins of Nongpho Village.
