Bangkok River Partners launches REFILL NOT LANDFILL in Thailand
Successfully launched in Cambodia, Laos, and Indonesia, REFILL NOT LANDFILL is a community environment project that has now arrived in Thailand. The goal is to reduce the need to buy water in single-use plastic bottles that ultimately pollutes the environment after disposal.
The first refill stations are located at River City Bangkok, Warehouse30 and The Jam Factory. The first provider of water canisters with printed QR code to their resort guests is Siam Hotel. The Siam has also installed refill stations at the hotel.
The simple concept is for hotels to provide guests’ water canisters printed with the campaign QR code. Guests scan the QR code with smart phones to launch Google Maps, which shows the nearest free water refill station. Canisters with QR codes are also available at retail outlets, including RCB Gallery Shop at River City Bangkok.
The water refill stations will be available in other accessible Bangkok locations, including cafes and restaurants, retail and art centres, and more. Their locations can be added to the Google Map by logging onto the website www.refillasia.com. Bangkokians and international visitors can now help the lands and oceans by carrying their own reusable water canisters to refill as they head out to explore the riverside neighbourhoods and attractions.
