A plastic problem

A short presentation on why plastic is such a problem.

Since we moved to Vietnam a few months ago, we’ve been very aware that single use plastic is everywhere. It bothered us from the start but when I saw some baby monkeys in the forest eating some plastic bags, we decided that we had to do something.

We then created a local group that gathered 1000 members in less than a month.

We are looking for solutions for businesses to lower their use of plastic while raising awareness to the public.

Right now we are focusing on :

  • Bamboo straws
  • Reusable glass bottles instead of plastic bottles
  • Banana leaves wrapping for food to go
  • Bamboo toothbrushes for hotels and individuals

What you can do :

  • Be mindful of your use of plastic and avoid it when you can
  • raise awareness to your friends and invite them to our Zero Waste Saigon Chalenges
  • Talk to your favorite local buisnesses and help them reduce their plastic use
