Tetra Pak, a world-leading processing and packaging solutions company, celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Green Roof Project for Friends in Need (of “PA”) Volunteers Foundation. The celebration event, which was held at Big C Extra Ratchadapisek, included various activities with prizes for all the participants who volunteered to learn how to correctly fold used beverage cartons for disposal.

The Green Roof Project organises collection and recycling of used beverage cartons to produce roof sheets that are distributed to natural disaster victims and other needy communities nationwide. Over the past ten years, the Green Roof Project has collected approximately 254 million used cartons, which were recycled into more than 66,700 roof sheets. The project is currently in its fourth stage, which began in June 2019 and will last until June 2021.
