ISSP [2021] : Plastic Reduction And Recycling In Condiminiums

Thailand was deemed one of the largest producers of plastic pollution in the world in 2019, generating around 27 million tonnes of plastic waste annually. The excessive plastic consumption in conjunction with lack of recycling within the country caused avoidable environmental issues and economic fallout. Partnering with Less Plastic Thailand, our team observed plastic waste habits and identified waste sorting issues, assessed other organizations strengths and weaknesses, and tested methods to increase plastic reduction and recycling efforts in the Regent on the Park 2 Condominium as a proof of concept. We recommended a full list of proof of concept guidelines and successfully proven research suggestions which included how to approach a condominium, systemic change, and marketing strategies to aid in Less Plastic Thailand’s plastic waste reduction and recycling campaign within condominiums.
