Particularly, the program aims to encourage local people to use biodegradable plastic bags (in stead of sigle-use plastis products that are unable to destroy) in their daily life in order to minimize environmental pollution and protect human health.

This meaningful program has proved the local government’s determination towards the dissemination of campaign “Say no to single-use plastic products” among the islanders, contributing to build Phu Quy district with the  image of a green-clean-beautiful island without environmental pollution. Public agencies, organizations, officials, cadres, Party members and Youth union members in the three communes of Ngu Phung, Tam Thanh and Long Hai will take the lead in using biodegradable plastic products.  

To ensurethe campaign’s success, local authorities have issued plans to prepare biodegradable and compostable plastic bags supply. Especially, the people’s Committee of Phu Quy district has asked local departments and organizations to set up agent network for distribution of environmentally friendly, biodegradable, self-destructive plastic products. After the launching ceremony, local authorities will continue propaganda work to raise public awareness about the harmful effects of plastic waste to living environment. At the same time, cadres and residents will be encouraged to collect, classify and recycle plastic products.
