But everyone doesn't have space for making their own compost so the campaign also includes starting a community compost station where food waste can be dropped off by businesses and locals.
A community compost needs initial funding and in order to raise money a few businesses came together to arrange an event where all the income would support the project.
The event was called Lanta October Fun Fair and visitors to the fair could enjoy food and drinks, learn more about the project, buy handicrafts, participate in games and win prizes in a raffle.
Lanta International Language School helped by selling Thai food and donating all the proceeds to the project.
Totally more than 160 000 THB was raised and the next step is to start building the compost station.
