Over 800 volunteers join hands in cleaning Da Nang beach

More than 800 volunteers joined a campaign to clean Kim Lien beach in the central city of Da Nang on August 7, which was jointly held World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Vietnam, Prudential Vietnam and the municipal Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

Benjamin Rawson, WEF Vietnam’s Conservation and Programme Development Director, said that each year, about 8 million tonnes of waste are released into the sea.

About 80 percent, or 150 million tonnes of plastic waste are originated from the mainland, he noted, stressing that each year, up to 2.5 trillion USD of loss is calculated due to impacts of plastic waste on the ocean.
