The Thai Hotels Association (THA) is working with Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to intensify its effort at reducing the use of plastic.

Various campaigns will encourage hotels, to reduce single use plastic. Tour companies, travel agencies and online travel agencies will be motivated to support participating hotels that are part of this project.

 

 

TAT will support all participating hotels in the participation in trade shows including the ITB, TTM, and WTM of the many.

 

 

 

TAT is determined to make sustainability real and irreversible.
