Was he really a genius? Comedian Jang Dong-min wins Ministry of Environment award for recycling idea

Comedian Jang Dong-min became a hot topic after receiving an excellence award for his recycling idea at the ‘2023 Environmental Startup Competition’ hosted by the Ministry of Environment.

On the 1st, the Ministry of Environment and the Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute held the ‘2023 Environmental Startup Fair’ at COEX in Gangnam-gu, Seoul to discover and support promising green industry start-up items. Out of a total of 268 teams, 25 teams were finally selected after expert evaluation. Among them, Blue Sky Co., Ltd., headed by Dong-min Jang, won the Excellence Award in the environmental startup star company category.

Jang Dong-min participated in this startup competition with the idea of ​​‘ PET one-touch removable container packaging’. The one-touch removable label for PET bottles developed by Jang Dong-min makes it easy to recycle by turning the bottle cap and detaching the label at the same time.

Recently, label-free bottled water has been introduced, but most products still have labels. If a label is attached, it must be removed cleanly to recycle the PET bottle. Jang Dong-min came up with the idea based on the fact that many plastic bottles are simply thrown away because this process is cumbersome.

After receiving the award, Jang 안전놀이터Dong-min posted on his Instagram, “Thank you so much. “I don’t think I’ve ever had such a happy day in the 20 years I’ve been in business,” he said. “I participated in the 2023 Environmental Startup Competition and finally made it to the final competition today, where I undeservedly received the Excellence Award. “I am very grateful, and I will work hard to convey my ideas to consumers,” he said happily.

Jang Dong-min, known as the ‘genius of the comedy world’, attracted attention by demonstrating his amazing skills not only in comedy, which is his main profession, but also in brain entertainment shows such as ‘The Genius’ and ‘Crime Scene’. He won an international poker competition held in Vietnam last March and received a prize of 50 million won. He has continued to run his business with overflowing ideas. The company that received this award focuses on collecting and selling recycled materials.
