SCGC and Amway Unite to Reduce Greenhouse Gas EmissionsSCGC and Amway unite to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by upcycling post-consumer plastics into desk and chair sets for students in remote areas.

On 8 March 2023, Amway (Thailand) Ltd. has continued to be a driving force in actualising a sustainable society as Mr Kittawat Ritteerawee, Managing Director, together with Mr Kamol Kieawsrikul, Operations Director, unitedly announced Amway’s latest partnership campaign for sustainability with SCG Chemicals PLC. (SCGC), our corporate member, led by Mr Pisan Uawithya, New Business Director and Mr Krisada Ruangchotevit, Head of ESG Office.

The new “Together We Turn Waste into Desks” campaign aims to upcycle Amway’s post-consumer HDPE plastic packaging into 200 study desk and chair sets for a border patrol police school. In addition to maximisation of usability through upcycling process, the campaign also sets out to crystalise a concept of resource maximisation among youths, aligned with the circular economy approach.

Amway’s determination is supported by SCGC— a leading chemical business for sustainability with excellence in eco-friendly plastics or “Green Polymer”, materials science, as well as product design and moulding. Used plastic packaging collected by Amway will be recycled and transformed into desks and chairs by SCGC. With 70% recycled plastic, these highly durable study desks and chair sets are reliable and significantly essential for schools and students in rural areas. Aside from boosting the circular economy, the campaign simultaneously reduces waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

The “Together We Turn Waste into Desks” campaign is a part of Amway’s ongoing social contribution program entitled “Amway: Together We Build School for Children”. Amway encourages consumers to return Amway’s post-consumer plastic packaging at every branch of Amway Shop to the goal of “collecting 2,000 kilograms of Amway’s post-consumer plastic packaging and turning them into 200 sets of study desk and chair” can be swiftly and fruitfully accomplished. The campaign period is from 1 March to 30 April 2023.
