Recycling Cardboard Boxes into Hospital Beds
To help address the short supply of hospital beds for Covid-19 patients, the Volunteer Club of Mahidol University International College (MUIC) organized an activity called “Box to Bed” that ran from May 5 until May 16, 2021.
The donated boxes can then be forwarded to SCG company which spearheads the campaign and recycle them into camp beds in hospitals which have numerous Covid-19 patients. It can be recalled that the sudden increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in the past two months resulted in a short supply of hospital beds.
The project was also a good way to encourage students to reduce waste in their communities.
