Tetra Pak, the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company, is launching a nationwide roadshow campaign at Big C Supercenter to celebrate the 10 years anniversary of the Green Roof Project for Friends in Need Volunteers Foundation.
The project, which organises the collection and recycling of beverage cartons into corrugated roofing sheets used to construct homes and shelters for natural disaster victims and other needy communities nationwide is now in the fourth stage which began in July 2019 and will last until June 2022.
The roadshow will begin on 29 February 2020 at Big C Bangplee, Samut Prakarn province, and will extend to ten Big C branches located in central Bangkok, suburbs and several provinces nationwide.
The purpose of the roadshow is to encourage the public to participate in the Green Roof project by collecting and donating used beverage cartons for recycling. The campaign booths, set in Big C supermarkets, will hold various activities including teaching how to correctly fold used beverage cartons before disposing them, as well as games, quizzes and workshops to educate consumers on the recycling process. Souvenirs and gifts will be given away to volunteers who participate in the campaign by donating used cartons.
Tetra Pak launched the Green Roof project in June 2010 in partnership with Friends in Need Volunteers Foundation, Thai Red Cross Society, and Big C Supercenter Public Company Limited. The fourth partner, TV 360 news, joined the project in 2015.
The Green Roof project continues to play a major role in carton waste management in Thailand. The initiative reinforces Tetra Pak’s commitment to sustainable environmental management by encouraging collaboration among public and private organisations to contribute to a better environment. It also furthers efforts to build awareness on the importance of recycling and to form positive attitudes towards sustainability in Thailand.
Interested individuals can donate used beverage cartons for the Green Roof Project for Friends in Need Volunteers Foundation at drop-off stations at over 140 outlets of Big C Supercenters nationwide.
