POSTED Tuesday, Sept 17th on Facebook in American Women's Club of Thailand - Current & Former Members closed group:
Saturday, September 21st, is World Clean Up Day. There is a clean up organized by Trash Hero's Bangkok happening on Bangkrachao Beach (On the Green Lung) Details of the clean up are below.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, CAN YOU LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS SO I CAN LET TRASH HERO KNOW AND BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR YOU.
All members of your family are welcome to participate. I am also researching the best way to get out to the clean up location as public transport can only take you part way.
