BTS Weverse has announced an exciting, new BTS x ARMY project: “Army with Letter”.
This project invites ARMYs to write letters that express their “wholehearted love for BTS”. These letters will be compiled to create the “longest letter in the world by ARMY”.
From July 17 to August 4, fans are invited to write letters of any length to BTS, then submit the letters through BTS Weverse with the hashtag #TO_BTS. The letters are then printed…
…in this pink, BTS box, located at Seoul Marina Square.
When the event ends, this collective letter will be gathered then presented to BTS.
So far, ARMYs have already written over 100,000 letters. That’s a lot of paper!
For this reason, some ARMYs are voicing their concerns about the letter’s environmental impact, and they have decided not to participate, for this reason. More environmentally friendly alternatives for “ARMY with Letter” have been suggested.
If all the #ARMYwithLETTER for @BTS_twt will be printed on the paper, it will be too long. Not sure if the paper will be enough and worry about the efficiency. It’s actually wasting of paper. @weverseofficial How about e-letter on the tablet monitor in analog format like e-book?

While I see the meaningful intention behind #ARMYwithLETTER for @BTS_twt, my eco-friendly side is conflicted at the amount of paper being used. If you are also feeling this way & want to make up for the potential waste, I recommend downloading the @Ecosia app! They plant trees + pic.twitter.com/nUimG1ooEU

Despite these concerns, thousands of ARMYs have chosen to write letters because, well, they just can’t resist!
Army: #ARMYwithLETTER is gonna waste so much paper omg why couldn’t this be electronic…the boys aren’t even gonna read my letter so what’s the point…we’RE KILLING TREES
