epa08470629 A Thai Buddhist monk sorts out recyclable plastic bottles to produce recycled facial masks and monk's saffron robes amid the ongoing spread of the COVID-19 and coronavirus pandemic, at Wat Chak Daeng temple in Samut Prakan province, Thailand, 03 June 2020 (issued 07 June 2020). The Buddhist temple Wat Chak Daeng is well-known for managing the environmental campaign calling for donations of plastic bottles then transforming them into recycled fabrics before weaving and embroidering them into antibacterial robes. Amid the concerns of the ongoing spread of the COVID-19 disease, monks and volunteers produce facial mask made from used polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles collected by the temple's Buddhist monks, residents and donations aimed to control plastic waste as part of a waste management project to support environment protection and enhancing economic opportunities through recycled products. Thailand is one of the world's largest plastic polluters by generating more than two million tons of plastic waste each year.  EPA/RUNGROJ YONGRIT
