TBC Signs MOU to Become a Member of “Seedling Without Bin” Network

On June 22, 2022, a TBC representative signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to become a member of the “Seedling Without Bin” network, aiming to become the strongest waste management coalition in Thailand. This initiative seeks to establish a comprehensive waste management ecosystem from upstream to downstream, involving every related group from educators, waste sorters, material handlers, recyclers, collectors, product owners, to packaging producers to jointly solve waste issues. It also plans to develop a Green Learning Network, intending to extend the network to 5,567 CONNEXT ED schools nationwide to sustainably reduce waste from the source.

This network is led by Mr. Prasith Chakarttham, Assistant Vice President of Social Affairs and Environment at CP ALL Plc., executives from 7-Eleven and 7 Delivery, and 10 other organizations including SCG Chemicals Co., Ltd. or SCGC, SCG Packaging Public Co., Ltd. or SCGP, Unilever Thai Trading Limited (Unilever), SIG Combibloc Ltd., Thai Beverage Can Ltd., Tetra Pak (Thailand) Ltd., AMPOLFOOD Group, Wongpanit Suvarnabhumi Recycle Station Co., Ltd., Eco Friendly Thai Co., Ltd., and Wat Chak Daeng.

The “Seedling Without Bin” network was inspired by the success of the Seedling Without Bin project at Thap Sakae pre-elementary school in Prachuap Khiri Khan, under the CONNEXT ED project managed by CP ALL. This initiative encourages schools to reduce, avoid, and eliminate potential waste, promote waste segregation at the source, and reuse and recycle, turning what is considered waste into organic materials and generating income for schools. This effort has dramatically reduced waste from 15 tons per month to just 2 kilograms.
