Rubbish Youths collect 10K cigarette butts at Sihanoukville beach

The “Rubbish Youths” have picked up nearly 10,000 cigarette butts from Sihanoukville’s Ochheuteal Beach over the past two weekends, after launching a campaign to collect one million butts from Cambodia’s coastal areas to keep the beaches clean.

The Rubbish Youths started as a group of some 30 young people from Phnom Penh who spent months removing litter from the filthy Boeung Trabek canal in the capital’s Chamkarmon district.

Last month, they were finally able to claim that the canal was rubbish-free and residents were now disposing of their rubbish in an orderly manner.
