Trash Hero Pattani in Thailand organised a “zero waste camping” trip for 125 local residents, putting the concepts of reducing and separating waste into action over a weekend of family fun activities. The trip generated only 40g of residual waste per person per day, compared to the typical 1.3kg daily average per capita in Thailand. Best of all, the volunteers were able to demonstrate to local people that zero waste is possible in all kinds of situations.
