How To Make A Difference This Earth Day
On Earth Day, we come together to reflect on the pressing environmental issues facing our planet and the need for sustainable solutions. In Thailand, the Clean Air Act has been gaining traction, with over 57,358 signatures out of the 100,000 needed to bring this vital legislation to the forefront of the national conversation.
The Thailand Clean Air Network (Thailand CAN) has launched a powerful video campaign titled “Tomorrow It May Be You,” which is displayed on over 1,200 LCD screens across 52 BTS trains in Bangkok. This thought-provoking campaign aims to raise awareness about the serious public health impacts of air pollution in Thailand, primarily caused by the burning of crops for animal feed in northern Thailand and surrounding countries.
The Clean Air Act seeks to address these issues by implementing modern air quality standards, fostering integrated management among various stakeholders, improving data reporting and transparency, offering economic incentives for environmentally friendly production methods, and encouraging public participation in decision-making processes.

Once the target is met, the petition will be submitted to the Thai Parliament, urging them to take prompt action on this critical legislation.
By joining the campaign and supporting the Thai Clean Air Act, you are not only commemorating Earth Day but also contributing to a cleaner, healthier future for everyone in Thailand.
Adopting a plant-based diet can help reduce pollution caused by burning of corn fields and biomass that come as a by product from intense animal feed farming. This is a major issue in Thailand and causes incredibly polluted air. By choosing plant-based alternatives, we decrease the demand for animal feed like corn, which in turn will minimize crop burning. This Earth Day, let’s embrace a sustainable lifestyle, contribute to cleaner air, and promote better public health through our food choices!
