Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV), in cooperation with the Communications Center for Natural Resources and Environment at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE), held an opening ceremony for a children’s playground in Vinh Trach Dong commune, Bac Lieu city, in the Mekong Delta’s Bac Lieu province.

“This year, TMV and MoNRE as well as Toyota dealers ignited an initiative to build a playground for children from disposal tires,” said Mr. Hiroshi Okamura, Deputy Director of Sales and Service Groups at TMV. “Today, we are very happy to open the first playground in Bac Lieu and hope that the children will have a lot of fun. We will expand this initiative nationwide in the future.”

As a coastal commune in Bac Lieu province, people in Vinh Trach Dong face many difficulties and hardships and lack a children’s playing area. Recognizing the importance of a community playground to help children develop both physically and mentally, TMV supported the construction of the playground for children on an area of about 500 sq m. The special feature is that all equipment and facilities, such as swings, seesaws, slides, tables and chairs, and flower pots are made from old car tires in diverse shapes and colors. This is not only a creative, efficient way to utilize recycled materials but also a meaningful environmental protection activity.

TMV has always been aware of its responsibility to contribute to the sustainable development of the community. It has therefore not only made ceaseless efforts to minimize environmental damage and invested in research and the application of environmentally-friendly technologies at its plant, but also supported dealers and suppliers to take part in environmental activities with an aim to become a “green” company.

Toyota has been carrying out many activities in this field, in which the “Toyota joins hands to make school’s green” program, organized by TMV in cooperation with MoNRE since 2017, has receive appreciation from the community, especially the young generation.
