Can you imagine how much trash was left on the beaches? If you don’t know, I can tell you that in just three months there are more than 80 tons in Adang Ravi beach and Lipeh beach, Satool. It was like a crisis for local people who have to clean these up and keep the attractions look good for new visitors.

Besides making beaches clean, Tlejourn is also one of new jobs for many local housewife who had an effect of Violence Situation in Thailand’s Three Southern Border Provinces moreover, they also use local textile called “PaTehPaTaNy” as a package of the shoes. If there any benefit from this program, they will return the money to the development environment of the beaches later on.
