Green Efforts Project
WHA Group participated in a reforestation project with community volunteers to plant 200 samplings of indigenous trees such as afzelia xylocarpa, lamduan, and mahogany at a tropical forest in Bo Win subdistrict. Students of Ban Khao Hin School in Chonburi were also invited so they could learn the importance of trees to the ecosystem and the impacts of climate change on daily lives. Aside from offering shade, healthy trees provide oxygen and minimize carbon in the air, while providing food and shelter for wildlife, and maintaining favorable water and soil conditions.
In addition, WHA Group and the local authorities, industrial operators and communities conducted a Tree-Planting Project to restore the ecosystem and promote biodiversity at the Khao Kheow Chomphu Wildlife Sanctuary in Chonburi. The Group supported 30,000 Baht to purchase 1000 seedlings that were planted within an area of 7-00-88 Rai in the Sanctuary.
Another activity on the green agenda was teaching children about recycling and practicing environmentallyfriendly lifestyle. WHA Group's employees delivered color-coded trash bins to the Ban Phan Sadet Nok School in Sri Racha, Chonburi province, and explained to the students the concept of sorting and recycling to keep the planet clean. The young students participated in interesting discussions on how to sort waste materials and listened to suggestions and tips concerning waste reduction and reuse. Sharing the importance of doing good deeds for nature and the environment can start at a very young age.
