GC Provides T-shirts Made from Discarded Plastic Bottles in Support of the “SET RUN BANGKOK 2020” Running Event to Save the Planet

On February 16, 2020, Mr. Boonchai Chunhawiksit, Acting Senior Executive Vice President, Upstream Petrochemical Business, along with more than 10 runners from GC’s running community, attended the “SET RUN BANGKOK 2020” event under the concept of ‘Run With Heart, Run to Save the Planet, Run For Health’ organized by Nation Multimedia Group in partnership with the Ramathibodi Foundation. The event took place at the office of the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (Rama 9) with participants joining both the 5.6 and 11.7 km races.

Additionally, GC provided 2,600 GC Upcycled T-shirts made from recycled plastic. The shirts symbolize effective plastic waste management, including appropriate waste sorting and the upcycling process to produce running t-shirts to save the planet, as well as a value-added product that turns waste into worth. The event provided participants with a chance to exercise for their health, and to take pride in supporting the efficient use of resources for their maximum benefits.
