Bianca Caruana started this petition to Thailand Local Government

Roughly 10,000-30,000 people attend the Full Moon Party on Haad Rin Beach in Koh Phangan each month. 

Of those attendees, about 90% will drink at least 1 - 3 buckets of alcohol. One bucket contains 2 - 3 plastic straws. 

This means that on one Full Moon Party between 20,000 and 270,000 plastic straws will be used and most likely end up in Thailand's landfill or in the surrounding oceans. 

Plastic straws take hundreds of years to decompose. Before we know it Koh Phangan will turn into a plastic island. 

I'd like to call on the Thailand Government to ban the use of plastic straws at the Full Moon Party and look at more sustainable options.

Will you help raise awareness about this issue?
