Starting with small actions

TQO - The Vietnam Tourism Association and a number of related agencies have just launched the project "Reducing plastic waste in tourism”, aiming to solve the problem of plastic waste pollution.

Plastic waste and plastic bags are really causing disasters for the environment in general, the tourism environment in particular, especially for destinations that attract many tourists. According to the survey, on average every day, a tourist can discharge into the environment dozens of single-use plastic bags, bottles, and personal items.

With millions of tourists coming to Tuyen Quang province every year, it is possible to imagine how much waste is released into the environment.

To solve this problem, it is necessary to carry out synchronously solutions of a more frequent and long-term nature. In addition to propaganda to raise awareness of local people and tourists, the provincial functional agencies must also take measures and sanctions to severely punish organizations, individuals and tourism businesses that commit acts of infringing upon the environment, destroying the landscape.
