See what Vietnamese waste has?

Most of the waste in Vietnam (75.5%) does not need to be treated by landfill but can be either composted or recycled. This proves that the rate of organic waste in our country is relatively high and can absolutely bring other values.

However, the percentage of plastic waste still accounts for a considerable amount in the waste composition. Not surprisingly, one third of plastic waste is plastic, which also shows the dangers and consequences that plastic bags can threaten our habitat and ecosystem. Most plastic waste includes not only bags and packaging, but also includes hard plastic, polystyrene, PET bottles and diapers.

Knowing and understanding our waste is the first step for us to easily classify them, a small act that has a significant meaning to the environment.
