Tan Thanh was so proud in building the farmers’ good attitudes of keeping clean environment with the “Collect empty bottle-Get Tet gift” program in the past five years. Tan Thanh was the pioneer in plant protection chemical industry in Vietnam working strongly and sustainably for the environment.

The program attracted lots of farmers’ special concerns from its humanistic meaning in bringing the happiness to the gift receivers.
The farmers were always excited to choose Tet gifts on the Exchanging Day. Every year Tan Thanh has been changing the different gifts to make the farmers surprised. Only 10 or 20 bottles exchanging for a bag of refined sugar, two bottles of coke, 100 or 200 bottles exchanging for a big bag of soap powder, a case of Tiger beer.
The program was also supported by local authorities and Plant Protection Stations in many provinces. They have always appeared on the company’s buses to encourage Tan Thanh and the farmers.
With Communication Agency, the program got all supports from local TV stations which explicitly expressing through dispatching teams (at least one Editor and one Cameraman) for filming and writing whenever the company’s buses came to a certain province. The news would be compiled right away in the afternoon and broadcasted in that evening.
