Ms. Hye-June Park, President of The Aspen Tree, said: "The Aspen Tree is very proud to be part of providing drinking water in paper bottles for the annual Red Cross Fair 2019. Red Cross Fair 2019 aligns with the intentions of the Thai Red Cross to support sustainability including through using fewer plastic products. This also reflects MQDC's sustainability principle 'For All Well-Being', a commitment to work for the well-being of all life on earth, serving the public at large in driving sustainability and reducing plastic use, through using other materials, helping reduce waste in Thailand."
Ms. Janprapa Vichitcholchai, Deputy Director, Fund Raising Bureau, Thai Red Cross said: "On behalf of Thai Red Cross Society, we would like to thank MQDC for always supporting Thai Red Cross Society. MQDC's provision of paper water bottles came about because Thai Red Cross Society shares its principle of environmental friendliness. Paper water bottles are also in line with the Red Cross Fair's objective to be a model for sustainable fairs in Thailand in accordance with government policies to reduce waste. The use of paper bottles is one of the options for reducing plastic use by using biodegradable materials instead. Thai Red Cross Society believes that the use of drinking water paper bottle in this Red Cross Fair can help society recognize the importance of using fewer plastic bottles, which are a leading cause of plastic waste and many environmental problems, so that Thailand can become free of plastic waste."
