How Ban Mod Tanoy lost their waste?

In the past, Ban Mod Tanoy, a small community in Ko Libong of Thialand, has faced solid waste issues caused by household consumption, local careers and garbage from the sea. Then, the waste management talks began at the coffee shop meeting as well as local hospital started to realise that the cause of having breast cancer was long-time plastic consumption. The agreement, after the talks, comprises 6 sections: house cleaning on Friday; waste management campaign once a month; waste segregation in every house, vegetable planting for self-consumption; plastic and foam reduction; fish to eat mosquito larva. In 2017, the community was endorsed as a foam-free village by Department of Health.
