Piphat Apiruktanakorn

Piphat made his silver screen debut in the film The Bodyguard alongside action legend Tony Jaa. The actor turned designer and social entrepreneur has been advocating environmental issues for over a decade. Turning that passion into actionable policies, he co-founded the country’s first eco design and consultant service Kid Kid with his wife Siraphun Wattanajinda. The award-winning company has partnered with major players to promote environmental sustainability through design in various formats including advertisement spots, products and applications. For Piphat, it’s more than just a job. It’s about educating the public on pressing issues that are often overlooked in a country that has problems with pollution, deforestation and resource scarcity.
