Coca-Cola with Partner cleaning up Lat Phrao Canal

Include USA TerraCycle Hit TerraCycle Global Foundation TerraCycle Thai Foundation Coca-Cola Foundation Benioff Ocean Initiative
Operated through the partnership of TerraCycle Thai Foundation and the Department of Drainage and Sewerage (DDS), Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), the Thai project has installed two ‘River Plastic Traps’ to capture waste from the stream. The collected waste is then dried and sorted for proper disposal and recycling with data being recorded for future use in raising awareness among community members and promote behavioral change as a sustainable solution.   Nuntivat Thamhatai, Public Affairs, Communications and Sustainability Director of Coca-Cola (Thailand) Limited, said: “Driving partnerships that promote debris-free environment is one of our ‘World Without Waste’ commitments. Coca-Cola believes the biggest differences can be made when business, government and civil society with shared value join hands and work towards the same goal which is precisely the case with this project. While this is still relatively small-scaled, we certainly hope that it serves as the beginning of many great works to come, so that, one day, there will not be the need to install any River Plastic Trap in any canal or river.”
