Greenpeace today called upon the government of Thailand to take immediate action to curb pollution of fresh water sources at the launch of its “Toxic Free Chao Phraya” river tour in Nakonsawan, Paknampo. Four greenpeace activists in inflatable canoes, were flagged off by Mr. Suphakit Boonyarithiphong, Governor of Nakhonsawan , for a unique 350 km long river-journey that will document and highlight the state of Chao Praya, the most iconic river of Thailand. The Toxic Free Chao Praya river journey aims to inspire all stakeholders on the river - government and industry, polluters and impacted communities to catalyse a collective effort to find solutions to save the Chao Phraya river.
