The government of Thailand has decided to take action on the matter and has implemented a pioneering measure that can be effective return garbage to tourists who litter the Khao Yai National Park, which is a nature reserve located 180 kilometers from Bangkok.

The environment minister, Varawut Silpa-archa, has announced it through his Facebook account, making it clear that the garbage collected in the park will be sent by mail to those people who decide to leave it in the natural environment. “Tourist, here is your garbage back”, is the slogan of the campaign.

“The waste generated during your visit, please remove it and throw it away. Garbage in the natural environment can cause the death of wild animals in the park. In this case the garbage has been collected and has been delivered to the address of those responsible as a souvenir“, the minister has published.

According to the current law in Thailand regarding natural parks, abandoning waste is dangerous and damages the ecosystem, so the penalty for doing so is up to five years in prison or fines that can reach 13,000 euros, so receiving the garbage bag at home is a lesser evil.
