Asan, South Chungcheong Province, conducted an environmental campaign to collect plastic bottle caps and donate them to environmental organizations.
Asan, Chungcheongnam-do, donated plastic bottle caps twice to the cooperative Onyang laboratory located in Asan City.
Since July, Asan, Chungcheongnam-do, has been promoting a “bottle lid collection challenge” campaign for home game spectators to protect the local environment with small practices in their lives and move toward a sustainable resource circulation society. In August, it collected 6kg of plastic bottle caps and donated them once to the “mole mill” of the Gwangdeoksan Environmental Education Center in Cheonan.
The cooperative Onyang laboratory, which is the donation site, is an organization that uses waste plastic to produce upcycling products such as pots, magnet holders, and key rings. It operates environmental education and zero-waist shops to create a local resource circulation culture.
On this day, Asan, Chungcheongnam-do, collected about 8kg of bottle caps and donated them, and the collected bottle caps will be cleaned and sorted before being reborn as various new recycled products.
A team campaign manager said, “When I collected the bottle caps, I realized how much plastic we’ve been using and throwing away. “I am proud to take a step closer to resource conservation and carbon neutrality through small practices with fans,” he said.
Meanwhile, Chungnam Asan plans to actively expand carbon reduction and social contribution programs that can be easily done in everyday life in the future.
