62 Organizations Join Forces to Collect Used Paper Boxes
For Recycling as SCGP Paper Field Hospital Bed
Sixty-two organizations join forces to launch a project --“United to Fight Against Covid: Transform Used Paper Into SCGP Paper Field Hospital Bed” -- to campaign for consumers to care for the environment and become a part of the project by sending used paper boxes for recycling and reuse in accordance with the Circular Economy. Committed to helping society during the current Covid-19 pandemic, the organizations open collection centers of used paper boxes to be recycled into SCGP paper field hospital bed for distribution to those in need throughout the country.
Mr. Wichan Jitpukdee, Chief Executive Officer, SCG Packaging Public Company Limited, SCGP, reports that the company has engaged in a cooperative effort as one of 62 organizations in launching the “United to Fight Against Covid: Transform Used Paper Into SCGP Paper Field Hospital Beds” project in a campaign to encourage consumers to take good care of the environment.
The project aims to educate and create an understanding about using and managing leftover paper materials in order to bring them back for reuse. This includes recycling the materials into “SCGP paper field hospital beds”, a creative design for social innovation, which has been developed to help those afflicted with Covid-19 and to support the work of health personnel. Collection of the materials is slated to take place from April 28 to May 31.
“The new Covid-19 outbreak has created a shortage of hospital beds and led to the setting up of field hospitals in various localities, and as a result created a need for large numbers of field beds. For this reason, SCGP has designed ‘SCGP paper field hospital bed’ made of 100% recycled paper that weighs only 14 kilograms and can be easily and rapidly assembled and installed. The bed can bear the horizontal weight of 100 kg.
“However, a constant demand has led to 62 organizations joining hands to set up stations to collect used paper boxes for recycling into SCGP paper field hospital beds,” says Mr. Wichan. Any person wishing to participate in this project may deposit their used or disused paper boxes at collection stations set up by all 62 participating partners. SCGP will collect them to be recycled and produced as SCGP paper field hospital beds for distribution to those who need them.
“SCGP wishes to thank cooperative efforts by all organizations and people who lend their support to the project to help fellow Thais to overcome this challenge together. Moreover, we are helping to conserve the environment by recycling a resource for reuse and to create the utmost good.
