It was the last straw… and chip bag and candy wrapper for the Thai environment chief.
After sloppy campers left trash in Khao Yai National Park, Varawut Silpa-archa did what any normal official would do: He tracked down the offender’s address, gathered up the trash, and personally mailed it back to them with a thoughtful note:
“You have forgotten some of your belongings at the Khao Yai National Park. Please let us return these to you.”
Sure, littering in Thailand’s national parks is already a crime punishable by 5 years in prison or a $16,000 fine—but that’s no fun compared to Varawut's pick-of-the-litter postal campaign.  
He pledges to continue returning litter to the park’s 1.5 million annual visitors: “I will pick up every single piece of your trash, pack them well in a box and mail it to your home as a souvenir.”
