Volunteers from Pepsi-Cola (Thai) recently joined an activity organised by Thammasat University, government agencies and the private sector to sail along the Chao Phraya River and collect the mountains of trash.

Pepsi-Cola (Thai)’s Wannaporn Wattanakasemsat said the programme covers a distance of approximately 349 kilometres from Nakhon Sawan, Uthai Thani, Chai Nat, Sing Buri, Ang Thong, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Bangkok to Samut Prakan
“The volunteers picked up 3,215 kg of waste during the 10 days of the activity,” she said “Recyclable waste such as cans and bottles were collected and sorted for recyclinh.”
She added that this activity is a part of the PepsiCo’s CSR project “Winning with Purpose”, which aims to protect the environment.
