AIGS supports staff and customers to use less plastic
March 2019 – The Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (AIGS) has launched a campaign supporting staff and customers to use less plastic in order to reduce the damaging effects of plastics on wildlife and the environment.
Bangkok-based AIGS began the initiative by giving its students a refillable bottle and its employees a reusable food container.
AIGS is also giving a reusable food container, cloth shopping bag and refillable bottle to each of its customers.
“While making our own small but vital contribution, we also encourage our valued customers to follow this campaign with their families and employees,” said AIGS Chairman Kennedy Ho.
Thailand, with a population of around 70 million, generates a lot of plastic waste.
A single person in Thailand typically uses up to 10 pieces of plastic a day, so using reusable containers is an effective way to reduce consumption of plastics that are going to stick around for ages with destructive effects on wildlife and the environment, AIGS says.
“Now we need to join our neighbouring countries to crack down on plastic waste,” Kennedy Ho said.
“AIGS is supporting our staff, and encouraging our customers, to reduce use of plastic and to help save our environment,” he added.
“We do believe that together we can save our planet.”
