Mrs. Wallapa Traisorat, Chief Executive Officer and President, Asset World Corp Public Company Limited (AWC), revealed that “AWC and its partners have come together to deliver joy during the New Year celebrations. The GIVE GREEN CBD: SYNERGY POWER project has been held for 9 consecutive year to create value for the community, society, the environment, and the country through a strong partnership between AWC, the BMA, and its partners from all sectors who have come together to Build a Better Future and create happiness for everyone. This year, "A Sathorn District Charity Christmas Tree" was created under the Circular Economy concept, in collaboration with Vitchulada Pandaranuwong, a young designer who specializes in creating art from recycled materials. The Christmas tree was designed under the "Create Joy with Excess Materials" concept to convey the idea of reducing waste and caring for environment by recycling materials to create new useful items. Waste materials from TCC Group’s operations such as plastic bottles, bottle caps, bed sheets, plastic straps, and aluminum caps are recycled to create a large and spectacular Christmas tree which will be on display from 9 December 2022 - 8 January 2023.”
