Mr. Thanarak Kanchanakhunthakul, Social Impact Department Manager of Thai Bridgestone Co., Ltd., stated that “The Single-Use Plastic campaign is one of the policies and roadmaps within the organization of Bridgestone Asia Pacific (BSCAP). After we initiated the “Together We Recycle” activity on the World Environment Day, June 5th 2021. Our employees and family members from 6 affiliated companies of Bridgestone Thailand have paid attention and changed their behaviors of recycling waste sorting of “the single-use and disposable plastics” such as plastic bags, wrapping film, shockproof plastic and etc. Since then, they collected and delivered them to the “WON” project to be re-manufactured into bags for garbage and brought back to use in the organization again successfully. This is the most cost-effective utilization of plastic as well as reducing the problem of plastic waste that will directly affect our world.”
