Plastic waste prevention and environmental protection club (Club) in Nha Nam commune (Tan Yen district) raises the piggy bank from waste collection.

Inspired from the idea of “collecting the wastes, reducing the environmental impact, fund raising”, the young members in Thanh Gia and Dai Lam Parishes have discussed to setup the youth scrap team in Tam Di commune since 2019. On the last Sunday every month, they trek the cart to each household to ask for the used materials as well as propagandise to protect the environment and call for people to classify the wastes at home.

To date, the team has attracted more than 80 youths and received warm response from hundreds of families in the commune. All the money collected by selling the used materials is used for charity work for the community.

Typically, Vi Quynh Tranh, student at fourth grade in Tam Di Primary and Secondary School is among the impoverished students benefited from the fund. Her father passed away when she was a little girl while her mother went off without any information. For years, she lives with her old grandmother.

Acknowledging Trang’s circumstance, the youth members mobilised the fund and called for the Kind Heart Association in Luc Nam district to present 5 million VND (215 USD) to her family which partly helps Trang pay for the fee of studying.

Nguyen Van Manh, Secretary of Tam Di communal Youth Union said: “The action of youth in Thanh Gia and Dai Lam Parishes contributes to spread the green lifestyle to many local youngsters. Each youth becomes an active factor to protect the environment, limit the use of nylon bags and prevent the plastic waste”.

In response to the “Plastic waste prevention” movement launched by the provincial Youth Union, several youth unions in the province have established the teams and clubs to collect the waste and protect the environment.

Plastic waste prevention and environmental protection club (Club) has recently established in Nha Nam commune (Tan Yen district) with 15 members. After the debut on June 9, the Club visited 40 families to call for their collection and classification of wastes to donate to the youth charity fund.

Similarly, the Waste prevention club in Bac Lung commune (Luc Nam district) has been founded with 20 youth members.

Additionally, the clubs and youth union in the residential groups have actively coordinated with the associations and agencies to effectively organize the voluntary Saturday and green Sunday to keep the environmental clean and handle the waste black spots.

Each group is assigned with a different specific task. The youth member is the active factor in charity activities for the green life.
