This year, ULife, the modern direct sales business under RS Group, has developed household products, such as washing detergent, dishwashing liquid, and fabric softener, that are chemical-free and environmentally friendly. Additionally, within our organization, we have extended our waste management efforts from paper to plastic for reuse and recycling.

This year, RS Group and our employee volunteers partnered with Chatuchak District Office and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Rajanagarindra Institute to inspire and educate more than 200 youths on diversity and inclusion, as well as ways to handle bullying, through “Zero Tolerance of Bullying” activity at Senanikom School and Mathayomprachaniwet School.

The company also sent Camu C to Zendai, the non-profit volunteer group who provided assistance to COVID-19 patients. These Vitamin C drinks were parts of the efforts to support healthy volunteers and professionals in the front lines to get through the situation together.

The past two years had been difficult for many companies due to the economic condition and the pandemic. RS Group was able to adjust ourselves and grow consistently. We are also ready to show our responsibility towards the society and environment within and outside of the organization, while managing with good governance, so that RS Group, community, and the society can co-exist harmoniously and bring about sustainability in the coming future,” Surachai closed.
