Beehive symbolizes community, brightness and personal power, while honeycomb is said to be the perfect place for bees to raise their young.

We want this resource to grow, supporting new resources as they pop up around Bangkok. Use the contact form below to highlight any you discover. Monthly updates will be emailed to all subscribers keeping everyone up to date.

1. Rethink

The first step is to rethink society and the choice we make as producers and consumers. How can we change systems and habits to create a more sustainable future and contribute to a circular economy?

2. Refuse

Next up is to refuse – saying no to single use items is a powerful way to use your voice as a consumer.

3. Reduce

How can we reduce the impact we have? Buying in bulk, using locally sourced products and reducing meat consumption is a good start.

4. Reuse

Extending the life of products that already exist reduces waste and the impact on the natural world in a big way. Repairing, donating, swapping and preloved purchases are great habits to adopt.

5. Recycle

Making the concious choice to recycle what you can into something new has a powerful impact. Its not always easy to find how you can do this in Bangkok, these links should get you started.

6. rot

Once you have exhausted these steps – its time to explore rot. Any organic waste can be turned into compost, which in turn will grow you more food. This process highlighting the circular economy model at its best. Even condo living can adopt this and our links will show you how.
