Waste Management

Vietnam is among the top 5 contributors to plastic waste globally, with more than 30 million tons of waste generated annually. Of all of the waste generated in Vietnam, only a mere 10% is retrieved for recycling or reusing, including items such as paper, metal, glass, rubber, and various plastics. Plastic marine waste causes US$ 13 billion worth of damage annually to communities, fisheries, marine transportation, tourism businesses in terms of health, economic, and environmental issues. Therefore, GreenHub’s waste management efforts are centered around raising consumer awareness and influencing behavioral change to reduce, reuse, and recycle (3R’s) waste, marine debris monitoring and Coastal Clean-up Campaigns including volunteer activities to engage the community.
