Foreign embassies, organisations advocate reducing plastic pollution in Vietnam

22 embassies and international organisations in Vietnam will sign a code of conduct on plastic pollution prevention next Monday to mark World Environment Day (June 5).

Initiated by the Canadian Embassy, the campaign aims to raise public awareness of adverse impacts of plastic pollution and call for changes in behavior, institutions, and policies to reduce plastic waste in Vietnam.

The signatories commit to monitoring single-use plastic products in their offices and encouraging their staff and partners to reduce plastic products. International agencies in Vietnam hope to raise public awareness of pollution's harm to humans, animals, and the environment.
