The issue of plastic waste management has been identified as a core issue in Vietnam. Increasing plastic consumption due to population growth, urbanization, and international plastic scrap imports,in combination with a lacking waste infrastructure where waste isn’t sufficiently collected, sorted, or disposed, creates immense pollution causing damage to the environment and health. Today, Vietnam ranks among the top 4 plastic polluters globally.
