Thai National Park Mails Rubbish Back To People Who Have Littered

Thai National Park Mails Rubbish Back To People Who Have Littered

A national park in Thailand sent a powerful message to litterers who left a load of stuff behind them after a visit.

Actually, the team at the park sent a whole lot more than that - they packed all the litter up and mailed it back to the folks who'd left it behind, as part of a wonderfully thought-out strategy to shame people into clearing up after themselves.

Come on, in this day and age, we should be beyond littering, shouldn't we?

It's lazy, it's a horrible habit, and it just ruins stuff for everyone else.

Also, if you decide you want to drop a load of crap at the Khao Yai National Park near to the Thai capital city Bangkok, there's a chance you'll get a passive aggressive note sent to you, along with all of the aforementioned crap that you decided to leave.

Oh, and they'll register you with the police, too. Nobody wants to be on an official record as someone too lazy to pick up after themselves.

This move was announced by the Thai government's environment minister, who confirmed that they're going to start sending packages full of rubbish to anyone who doesn't take it back or put it in the bin.

Varawut Silpa-archa shared a photo of the trash ready to be posted on his Facebook account, warning potential litterers: "Your trash - we'll send it back to you."

Littering is already punishable with a hefty fine and a steep prison sentence - up to five years - for the worst offences.

The mailed package also contains a note that reads: "You forgot these things at Khao Yai National Park".

You see, as has become commonplace at a lot of places in the world right now, people must give their name and address when visiting the national park. This is a good way to keep track of people in case of you-know-what, but also to catch out litter bugs.

The people who run the park are rightly concerned about the place looking a mess, but also argue that litter can be dangerous to animals who might try to eat it, too.

Also, as we've covered, we should just be better than that. It ain't difficult to take it with you, or put it in the trash.
