On May 18, 2018 The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment launched a campaign to celebrate World Environment Day. This year’s theme was hone in on the issue of plastic pollution under the hashtag #BeatPlasticPolution and is spearheaded by this year’s host, India. As a part of the event, Vietnam has chosen a central slogan to promote public interest in environment issues: “Say no to single-use plastics”.
In the status of the environment is seriously polluted by garbage especially plastic waste, many countries have issued a ban on using polythene bags. Being one of top 5 countries which leak plastic waste most into the ocean, Vietnam government, and specifically Hochiminh city authorities have issued plans to multiple municipal departments in hopes of seeing a reduction in the use of plastic bags and products.
To do this, the authorities build strategies to raise public awareness surrounding plastic waste, alongside a phasing out of nylon bags in marketplaces across the city and draw up a campaign to encourage local residents to use eco-friendly bags which is reusable instead of conventional plastic counterpart.
