Thailand Post's recycling campaign generates over 10,000kg of packaging, envelopes
The volume of used parcel packages and envelopes received in Thailand Post's recycling campaign is in excess of 10,000 kilograms.
Korkit Danchaivichit, president of Thailand Post, said the company and SCG Packaging had launched a campaign to allow people to send used parcel packages and envelopes to post offices nationwide.
These packages and envelopes would be recycled into table and chair sets for students in Border Patrol Police Schools nationwide, he said.
He expected the volume of used parcels to increase during the 9.9 online shopping campaign.
"Thai people ordered products during the 9.9 online shopping campaign because online stores and e-marketplaces offered discounts and promotions to attract people," he said, adding that this was a good campaign because it helped stimulate the economy.
"Therefore, we would like to invite people, online retailers and business organisations to send used parcel packages and envelopes to postal offices nationwide, as well as parcel and envelop pick up points at Siam Cement and Provincial Electricity Authority's head office," he said.
The campaign ends on October 31.
