Bangkok Alliance Against Plastic! October 7th

We came across an interesting event that hit Facebook a few days ago, and here at Mango HQ we are all in favour of making Bangkok a cleaner place to live in, participation in events like this is a great idea to raise the public’s awareness on the problems here in Thailand, and Bangkok concerning litter and the over use of plastic.

So get yourself along and we shall see you there.
