Practice in reducing plastic and waste

In practice, people have been conscious of garbage classification. However, this is not evaluated well and it varies between provinces. People often use disposable plastic products in their daily life and usually tend to throw them away after use. Plastic waste reduction practices such as refusing to use, reusing, using environmentally friendly products…have been implemented but are not yet habitual in daily life.

🌿 Just over 40% of respondents said that they classify their waste as “Very Good” and “Good”;

🌿 83.3% and 54.2% of respondents use 1-4 plastic bags and plastic bottles daily;

🌿 Less than 10% of respondents carry out activities aimed at reducing the habitual use of single-use plastic;

🌿 About 50-70% of respondents intend to change the behavior of using single-use plastic products
