Chip bags, soda cans used for ‘green’ dresses at The Bayview



Green is the color of the season at the The Bayview Hotel where employees created 21 dresses made from recycled products found at the resort.

General Manager Nijjaporn Maprasert hosted the Sept. 4 fashion show, which awarded prizes to employees from four departments who used potato chip packets, soda cans, plastic bags and other recyclable items to craft costumes and dresses.


Kanchana Duangmokphanao from the hotel’s guest services department won the top prize for her costume recalling Kinnaree from Thai literature with a dress she called “Hiranyakinnaree” made of chips packets and soda cans.

Waraporn Bumrung from Inventory won second prize with her creation called “Sam Samphan,” which was made entirely of crisps packets. Floor supervisor Prapas Duangchaingern won third place for her dress, which was “sewn” from threads cut from plastic bags.

“This activity was created for employees to have a part in campaigning and to remind employees of the hotel to never stop and always push for development and improvements, including pushing for helping the world, learning to preserve the environment and reducing energy consumption,” Nijjaporn said.
