A Frenchman and his Thai pal won kudos for collecting garbage from beaches in Krabi Province during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The 24-year-old student, Nathan Sorin, has been an intern at a hotel in Krabi for nearly a year. He and his friend, Sirawit Chanchota, have been collecting plastic waste at tourist sites for the past two months.

Krabi Gov. Kitibhodi Prawit on Thursday presented the two with certificates of recognition.

The governor said the Krabi administration lauded the two men’s volunteerism and awareness of environment conservation that deserved public recognition. 

Sorin said while doing the internship he had fallen in love with the environment the southern Thai province has to offer. After finishing the internship next week we plans to raise fund in France for cleaning beaches and marine parks in Thailand… if he can get a flight home.
