King’s Road Angkor Premium Office & Property Management organized the Siem Reap Clean Up campaign, which is by far the biggest community event ever held. 

Plastic is currently the worst problem on our planet. 79 percent of the plastic produced over the last 70 years has been thrown away, either into landfill sites or into the general environment. Just nine percent is recycled, the rest is incinerated.

Because of this environmental concern, King’s Road Angkor Premium Office & Property Management, has recently organized Siem Reap’s Cleanup Campaign, last April 6, 2019, which was by far the biggest CSR campaign in Siem Reap. 316 volunteers coming from Hotels & Boutiques, F & B and Retail Outlets and other business entities participated. They were also joined by the Ministry of Environment, Siem Reap Office.

Siem Reap’s Clean Up campaign main aim is to promote zero usage of any form of plastics and non-biodegradable materials and to keep a clean environment.

‘’This cleanup campaign is our way of helping and teaching the communities to be responsible in preserving our environment for our current and also next generation’’ commented Mr. Jomari Cruz, King’s Road Angkor General Manager.

‘’ I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to the management team headed by Mr. Jomari Cruz for organizing and for the success of this community event in which we have shown our commitment to preserve our environment’’ said Mr. Ban Vibol, King’s Road Angkor Chief Executive Officer.

This campaign took four strategic routes in Siem Reap to effectively maximize the number of volunteers. The groups went to Sivutha Blvd, the Hospital Road, Angkor High School, Wat Damnak, Siem Reap Riverside & Central Market Road.

In addition, concerning the safety of all the volunteers during the cleanup, King’s Road Angkor has facilitated an ambulance with a medical doctor on standby at King’s Road Angkor main entrance in case the volunteers would suffer from health issues during this community event.

‘’We take all aspects of safety and security seriously when we are organizing an event, we make sure that all participants are being taken care off’’, explained Mr. Jomari Cruz.

This Siem Reap Cleanup is only the start of the campaign for zero usage of plastics. During the second quarter of this year, King’s Road Angkor management will go to the different communities in Siem Reap to educate the people on the effects of using plastic and non-biodegradable items, which are affecting the environment.

‘’ We want to educate the communities about the lasting effects of using plastics and other materials which are harmful to our planet. We are already experiencing them at this time’’, explained Mr. Ban Vibol.

‘’ I want to express my deep gratitude to all the volunteers and to my Managing Director, Mr. Lim Nam and Mr. Ban Vibol Chief Executive Officer who lent their precious time to support this community event’’, said Mr. Cruz.

‘’My heartfelt thank you goes to the rest of the King’s Road Angkor management and staff for their hard work to make this event successful’’, were Mr. Jomari Cruz parting words.
