My project is about the Thai people and their feelings toward waste and what has already been built. This is shown primarily in the Muslim fisherman villages along the coast. These fisherman are slowly adopting modern technology and practices. However, those in regard to trash, maintenance, and recycling are less widespread. Many of the villages are resourceful and use much some “trash” with great utility. Unfortunately, the villages often have no means to dispose of trash and many do not even collect trash from the beaches. The issue of waste and conservation is a global issue and governmental. Everyone needs to play their part, even if few do. The rising Thai awareness is outpaced by growing Thai trash and refuse. These villages are concerned with global market prices for the goods they buy and sell, but there is no set price for a clean beach and a clean home. Thailand will have to eventually balance that against the more things and money which will eventually themselves become trash.
