Teijin Polyester (Thailand), a Teijin Group subsidiary in Bangkok that manufactures and sells polyester fibre, have announced their collaboration with the Assumption College Primary Section (ACP), campus of Assumption College, a private school in Bangkok, Thailand in a recycling project of used PET bottles that starts this week.
Two reverse vending machines, which accept used PET bottles and pay the user a fee, will be installed at the ACP campus, and the school will encourage their use by teachers, faculty, employees, students and visitors.
Teijin Polyester (TPL) will collect used PET bottles from the machines and recycle them into polyester fibre, which it will use to produce T-shirts. The T-shirts will then be provided to youths who participate in football clinics organized by ACP and the Japan Dream Football Association (JDFA), an organisation that supports young football players in Southeast Asia.
