March 2020 / Shin-Etsu supports GP / Huisartsenposten

Friday afternoon, March 20, personnel from our site in Pernis delivered 360 FFP3 masks and almost 1000 nitrile gloves to GP / Huisartsenposten Rijnmond. The resources can be used to protect medical personnel from corona contamination while performing their important work. A modest contribution given the huge shortages that exist at the moment, but every little bit helps. We are happy that we can also do something this way. The GP / Huisartsenposten Rotterdam provides emergency care in the evenings, at night and on weekends at four locations throughout Rotterdam, making it an important first safety net for possible corona infections. The resources will be deployed where they are most needed.

February 2020 / Rethink Plastics starts Instagram campaign

To positively influence the perception of plastics among the Dutch public, Rethink Plastics launched the Instagram campaign "Thanks in part to plastics and rubber" last week. Rethink Plastics is a joint initiative of the plastic-producing and plastic-processing industry in the Netherlands, to which Shin-Etsu is also a member. The intention of the new campaign is to show the applications of plastic and rubber with catchy images. And thus increase awareness among a larger audience. Instagram is primarily focused on visual expressions and Rethink wants to capture the value and applications of rubber and plastic products for the user in one image that is recognizable to everyone. Up to the summer holidays, a photo is posted twice a week on the Instagram account RethinkplasticsNL.
