Communications contest against plastic waste launched
- The nation set to be a pioneer in reducing ocean plastic waste
- Evergreen Labs to build plastic waste recycling center in Danang
According to a survey by GreenHub in 10 coastal provinces and cities of Vietnam in 2021, 93.6% of wastes leaked into the environment are plastic waste.
The top 10 waste leaked into the environment include soft plastic pieces (decomposed pieces from plastic bags); plastic bags; styrofoam food containers; hard plastic pieces; plastic straw; food packaging; confectionery packaging and other plastics.
Recognizing this situation, GreenHub in collaboration with VSF organized the Plastic Talk contest that seeks innovative communications products aiming to promote plastic waste reduction.
Winning works will be used in non-profit communications activities for environmental protection and sustainable development.
Vietnamese citizens aged between 16 and 30 are eligible to submit their works between July 15 and August 31. Submissions can be made in the forms of short films, comics, posters, and podcasts, among others.
The award ceremony is expected to be held in October. The awards include one first prize, one second prize, and one third prize for each category. The product that most voted by the audience will receive a special prize.
