Online shopping trends and increased household spending on food and beverages are creating key growth drivers for packaging products plastic. Every day, every online store throws away a lot of plastic bags and product packaging, and every restaurant also throws away thousands of plastic cups and bowls. Consumption of single-use plastic products has been seriously affecting the living environment.
As a bridge between sellers and buyers, understanding the serious impact of plastic waste on the environment, this November, J&T Express officially launched the campaign “Creating a green future” with the companion of the Center media of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, to encourage communities to collect waste to recycle them into valuable products. By placing 25 waste collection points in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Bac Ninh, J&T Express creates opportunities for traders and individuals to participate and spread the spirit of environmental protection in the most practical way.
Participants only need to clean and classify used plastic products such as plastic bottles, plastic boxes or milk cartons, etc. and bring them to gathering points from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on weekdays. Since its implementation, the program has been well received by many individuals such as store owners, small traders, traders, and businesses. Ms. Linh An, owner of a restaurant in Hanoi also said: “As soon as I learned about the program, I immediately encouraged surrounding store owners to classify trash and bring it to the collection point. I hope meaningful activities like this will spread widely and contribute to protecting the environment.” The campaign also spreads to many students and future generations who are willing to contribute their small part to making the planet greener. Hoai Lam, a student at Phu Lam 1 School, Bac Ninh, carefully washes and folds used milk cartons every day to bring to the collection point at school.
Ms. Loan – representative of Gathering Point No. 13 said that every day, she and her colleagues welcome dozens of people bringing plastic items. “Just a few days of implementation, the amount of plastic waste is rapidly increasing. If there is a lot of trash, our work is more difficult, but everyone is happy because they can do something meaningful.”
