People who litter in Thai national parks may get a surprise in their mail - their litter may be returned to them. Thailand decided to act on the increasing amount of wrappers, plastic bottles and paper thrown away in national parks. It asked park wardens to mail litter back to tourists. Litterbugs get a letter saying: "We collected your garbage...and sent it to your home. This should be a lesson...to never again throw away waste." People can also get a $16,000 fine.

Litter is an eyesore in many of Thailand's beauty spots. It is easy to find litterbugs because visitors to parks must register their address. Anyone who leaves litter near their camping spot will get their waste back. The head of a park said: "It can be dangerous for animals like deer if they eat the rubbish and try to digest plastic waste that people leave behind." The government said people should only leave footprints behind.
