From recycling to replanting

8 March 2018 | Wonderfruit

Remember Coca-Cola’s Namthip green recycling station at our main entrance? Here’s the second half of that story.

As part of their ongoing commitment to waste reduction, Coca-Cola Thailand asked Wonderers to recycle their plastic bottles and cans on the way into Wonderfruit and promised that for every three bottles and cans recycled, they’d plant a tree. Last week, Team Wonderfruit and Team Coca-Cola Thailand went to Chonburi to see that pledge fulfilled.

Wonderfruit’s co-founder and director, Montonn ‘Jay’ Jira and team Wonderfruit with a representative from Coca-Cola Thailand, made their way down to Mangrove Forest, Tambol Klongtamru , Chonburi province on 21 February to watch and help plant 3,500 mangrove trees.

As part of our ethos to make a meaningful positive impact, the initiative is particularly poignant since the mangroves will filter the air and the water right in Wonderfruit’s neighbourhood.

On the back of their Raknam Project, which focuses on returning clean water into communities and ecosystems, this project is also integral to Coca-Cola’s dedication to sustainability.
