THE BIG ISSUE

It is time to change the attitude and behavior of farmers and the farming industry, and those that turn their back on the issue of smoke pollution caused by agricultural-burning practices across Thailand.

Agricultural and forest land burning is now the main cause of respiratory illness and other smoke-related diseases leading to poor quality of life and shorter life expectancy.

Pollution-causing crop ‘burn-off’ farming practices helps farms meet their financial targets and ensures greater profits for the agricultural industry, but at what cost to human health?

Due to increasingly higher PM2.5 particle levels each year, we are now at a much higher risk of:

• Respiratory illness

• Smoke-related mental and physical illness, including depression

• Severe complications and even death from COVID19 infection

• Exacerbation of pre-existing conditions, leading to higher mortality rates

Our Mission

What is BurnFree.Org?

We are a non-profit organization that seeks to put an end to destructive agricultural-burning practices across Thailand. Our goal is to change the belief that burning is the only solution to dispose of crop residue and to stabilize carbon in the soil. We can prove that there are other more environmentally friendly approaches that are not only less polluting, but more profitable too.

• We want the public to take a stand and demand a change in agricultural practice and stop unnecessary crop burning that is polluting the air we breath.

• We want farms to change their behavior and discover more environmentally friendly farming methods for the disposal of crop residue and the remineralization and fertilization of soil.

• We want food markets to set a new standard that that recognizes ‘burn-free farming’ as the solution to the smoke pollution caused by agricultural-burning practice

The Thai government is fully aware of this humanitarian disaster but every year, despite local and national bans and threats of prosecution, most farms continue to ignore government ‘warnings’ and break the law. We cannot wait any longer for the government to deliver on their empty promises; we have not seen any concerted effort to enforce the ‘no burn’ policy and so this is where we (you) come in…

How You Can Help

By selectively purchasing products from farms that have taken the burn free pledge you are helping to put pressure on farms and stores to provide goods supplied with burn free practices. We also need time and funds to increase our reach and promote our mission. Contact us for ideas how you can help.
