Email

Tetra Pak Thailand, the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company, attended the BECARE 2018 Honoring Ceremony. During the ceremony, Tetra Pak and the BECARE project partners donated recycled papers to 13 blind schools at Areesumphun Meeting Hall, Department of Environmental Quality Promotion. The donated papers were produced by recycling used beverage cartons.

Initiated by Tetra Pak and industry partners, the BEverage CArton REcycling Project (BECARE) is one of the important environment projects of the company. The project has been implemented for more than 3 years, targeting mainly at local governments, whose waste management policy aligns with Tetra Pak circular economy initiative. Under the concept of  “BeCare Be Kind. Book for the Blind” in 2018, the project attracted high interest from the various groups of audience like local governments, communities, schools, private and government sectors. Together with the involved audience over 975 tons or 97,500,000 pieces of used beverage cartons were collected in a year to produce over 1,000,000 sheets of recycled paper for donation to 13 Blind Schools in Thailand.
