Plastic not fantastic

Sep 20, 2019

Phuket is Thailand’s most visited island destination, but strong tourism growth is not without its challenges. This month on 23 September, the second annual Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism (PHIST) convenes to raise awareness and initiate change. At the same forum last year, the island’s hotel association pledged to remove single-use plastic water bottles from 71 properties, resulting in a 51% reduction in 2019, and over 4.4 million bottles saved. The event is free and open to anyone who wishes to learn more about Phuket’s environmental initiatives.
