Phuket Green Day is an organised Corporate Social Responsible initiative launched by The Phuket Hotels Association’s Environmental & Sustainability Working Group in support of the PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) event which will see volunteers across the island unite to fight ocean and land pollution.
The event is fully supported and endorsed by the Phuket Government along with the Tourism Authority of Thailand and US Embassy Bangkok. Our member hotels are championing individual zone by suppling for volunteers.
Every year thousands of tons of garbage winds up in the oceans and around the island with 60% of that being composed of plastic material. Plastics especially last a very long time, and are in such abundance that there are 46,000 individual pieces of plastic litter for every square mile of ocean. Plastics are very hazardous to marine life, killing more than a million birds and over 100,000 seals, turtles, and whales, and an immense number of fish in our ocean.
