With an intention to preserve water resources and conserving environment, NESTLÉ intends to increase the quality of life and strengthen the health of the vital resources for the future generation. Nestlé Waters Thai-land, the business unit that bottles and distributes Nestlé Pure Life drinking water, continues to organize educational activities for the community, consolidating all the effort from schools, factories, neighborhoods, de-partment stores, and community residents, in order to celebrate World Water Day 2019. In an initiative to create consciousness and educate the community on environmental sustainability, including sharing first-hand lessons on the importance of using water efficiently in the factory and organizing a World Water Day exhibition, and invit-ing individuals to share an idea on water conservation, in order to pass it on and create a movement on sustain-able water conservation.
This year, on World Water Day 2019, Nestle Pure Life had set up 3 educational activities that encour-age public involvement. The first activity is the one-day trip, “Youth Water Guardian visiting Khlong Kanom Jean Nam Sai, Ayutthaya,” which give the opportunities to the customers who are interested to learn about conserving water resource and understanding how to efficiently manage the water supply. Additionally, they have experienced first-hand on the river lifestyle from the locals along with renowned actor, Toey-Pongsakorn, which help to develop the mindset on how everyone can help taking care of water.
The second activity is the World Water Day 2019 event, in collaboration with Big C Ratchada depart-ment store, with an intention to raise awareness on the importance of water and its preservation methods. Water is an extremely limited natural resource but is the essence of life, vital to human survival, agriculture, and vari-ous industries. It should be preserved for the future generation. The event features an educational exhibition on the current global water situation, information stations with entertaining games from the Youth Water Guardian project, and ideas on saving water at home completed with an interactive brainstorm session for the public on "1 creative solution to conserving water.”
The third activity is an effort by the Nestlé Waters Thailand manufacturing factories in Ayutthaya and Surat Thani. With an intention to preserve a stable environment, the factories decrease the use of water supply throughout the production process, reuse water when possible, and listen to feedbacks from surrounding com-munities. It is truly a collaboration between factories, government agencies, and private sectors. Mr Stefano Manenti, Nestlé Waters Suratthani Factory Manager, said, "Both of our Nestlé Waters Thailand manufactur-ing factories are committed to preserving the water resources, we put enormous efforts in ensuring a sustaina-ble water environment and conserving the ecosystem. The Ayutthaya factory recently received the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) certification in 2018, while the Surat Thani factory will be certified this year. Both fac-tories are organizing open houses which extend invitations to the Deputy, Subdistrict Headman, Government Officers, School Principal, Teachers, and Students to participate.”
