The Plastic Reborn
With all our heart, “The Plastic Reborn” program aims to build a community of 12,700 scrap collectors, a plastic waste collection and recycling system with a capacity of 80,000 tons per year, reducing emissions to 152 – 454 tons carbon into the environment every year by 2025. The program also contributes to promoting waste sorting at source in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and other provinces nationwide.
The program is honored to accompany Unilever, AEPW, and IUCN and get the response of international organizations such as UNDP, WWF, YOUNUS, NPAP to support and enhance the quality of life for disadvantaged female collectors in the collection system with the hope that they will receive honor and recognition as a major force in environmental protection.
Over the years, the program has supported female collectors with cleaning products, tools, and personal protective equipment and is making efforts to call for regulatory authorities and international organizations to join hands to deliver the favorable social security policy for them including health insurance, social insurance, etc., and improve their health and career awareness.
