Accordingly, the Youth Union in the ward coordinated with the Management Board of the market to broadcast the communication calling for the small traders to ink the commitment, local residents to minimize using nylon bad and single use plastic; keep organizing the programme “Point accumulation for gift exchanges” and “Exchanging recycle waste for tree” to encourage them exchanging plastic bottle, can, old books and newspapers to tools or trees.
The Secretary of the ward Youth Union Tran Thi Hai shared: “The action is warmly welcomed by the locals in the area, so the Youth Union gathered nearly 1,000 beer cans, plastic bottle, over 100kg of waste, old books and newspapers which were sold to gain expenses to present gifts and scholarships to local impoverished students”.
Via the project “Youth creates green lifestyle” and “5 green” movement, the youth in Hiep Hoa district selected the market in Thang town to implement the model. The local youth organized direct communication or delivered leaflets and effigies.
Toward an effective implementation, the district Youth Union established the voluntary teams together with the Management Board of the market to regularly clean up the area, remind the small trading households to limit the use of nylon bag.
