Tetra Pak, one of the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions companies, has signed a memorandum of understanding to extend the “Green Roof Project for Friends in Need (of "PA") Volunteers Foundation” for another three years.

 

The company said in a press release on Wednesday that the project organises the collection and recycling of beverage cartons into corrugated roofing sheets, which are then used to construct homes and shelters for natural disaster victims and other needy communities nationwide. 

 

The initiative is now confirmed for the next stage which will last from July 2019 to June 2022, taking the Green Roof project into its second decade next year.

 

Tetra Pak launched the “Green Roof Project” in June 2010, in partnership with “Friends in Need (of "PA") Volunteers Foundation”, Thai Red Cross, and Big C Supercenter Public Company Limited. The fourth partner, TV 360 degree, joined the project in 2015. 

 

In the project, Tetra Pak (Thailand) Limited, has also collaborated with the Foundation’s working networks and other partners including Beverage Carton Recycling Center by Fiber Pattana, and the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

 

The “Green Roof Project for Friends in Need (of "PA") Volunteers Foundation” plays a major role in proper carton waste management and recycling in Thailand. 

 

The initiative reinforces Tetra Pak’s commitment to sustainable environmental management by encouraging collaboration among public and private organisations to contribute to a better environment. It also furthers efforts to build awareness on the importance of recycling and to form positive attitudes towards sustainability in Thailand.

Does anyone know where to give the tetra pak cartons for recycling? Here there are many who come to get the plastic, paper, glass and so on but no tetra pak cartons!

Is the project mentioned below specifically about Tetra Pak I wonder, or is it just implying it, as I can't see where it states it clearly?

The reason I ask, is after watching some UK TV documentaries about recycling, Tetra Pak was singled out as the one which most local authorities refuse to accept for recycling, as its manufacture make it extremely difficult and expensive to recycle.

Where I live BigC is part of the collection, and has a box, made from the carton-plates, at one entrance. All cartons with alu-foil inside are collected, but asked please to be cleaned and opened up flat.

 

This what it might look like...
