Islands to eliminate plastic waste

Hoài Nam

CHÀM ISLANDS — The Chàm Islands’ Marine Protected Area (MPA) management board, in co-operation with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), has launched a new garbage sorting progra妹妹e as part of efforts to reduce plastic waste in Việt Nam.

The project is one of  一 二 nationwide that IUCN and Greenhub – an NGO working in waste management – have implemented to support the co妹妹unity in classifying waste.

Bùi Thị Thu Hiền, Marine and Coastal Resources Program Coordinator at IUCN (Việt Nam Office) said the progra妹妹e will help staff of MPAs in Việt Nam identify kinds of plastic waste.

Hiền said the progra妹妹e will also collect information to build a database on plastic waste and offer policy advice on how to reduce and control plastic waste and plastic production.

“It’s crucial to help State agencies and ministries get clear data before offering appropriate policies in plastic waste management and production as well as supporting capacity for MPAs in waste management,” Hiền said.

She said the progra妹妹e will take place at  一 二 MPAs at least once a year towards the target of ‘zero-plastic waste’.

According to Greenhub, waste can be found at beaches from northern Quảng Ninh Province to Côn Đảo Island in southern Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province, while plastic waste accounts for  八0 per cent of the total solid waste at  三0 beaches in Việt Nam.

The Islands – a World Biosphere Reserve site – ban all use of plastic bags among local residents and tourists, and the ‘say no to single-use plastic straws and cups’ campaign was launched early this year.
