SCG, led by Nithi Patarachoke, President of Cement-Building Materials Business, SCG, and APEC 2022 Thailand, led by Chantipa Phutrakul, Director of Young Ambassador of Virtue Foundation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, presented eco-friendly bookshelves made from recycled paper as part of the “Recycling for Kids” program to 15 schools nationwide under the Young Ambassador of Virtue Foundation. A collection of children’s books by the SCG Foundation are also included in the handout, which aims to promote education and reduce social inequality. Panita Suksomdan, Vice Principal of Anuban Phranakhon Si Ayutthaya School in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Maneeya Choonhajan, and teachers from Thanyasitthisin School in Pathumthani province, represented the handout recipients.
Eco-friendly bookshelves under the program “Recycling for Kids” are part of APEC 2022 Thailand’s green meeting. In this effort, SCG supports the year-round decoration of conference venues with recycled paper innovations totaling 7.7 tons, equivalent to reducing the use of 130 trees and lowering greenhouse gas emissions by more than 5.14 tons of carbon dioxide. In addition, recycled paper decorations leave an impression on attendees due to their attractiveness, low weight, and portability. It can also be reused at every meeting to save resources. After the meeting, paper waste and decorative materials will be revalued into bookshelves for children’s books that are aesthetic, sturdy, and meet consumption needs while decreasing waste, following BCG (Bio-Circular-Green Economy). With SCGP Recycle’s solution, paper waste is reintroduced to the recycling process, where resources are recycled and utilized efficiently and handed over to the youth.
