PTO - On July 15, the Provincial Tourism Association held a launching ceremony of the "Tourism joins hands in environment protect and plastic waste restrictions” action program.

The event was expected to call for changes in people's awareness and actions in the issue of environmental protection and plastic waste restrictions, especially the single-use plastic waste. The event was implemented in the form of caravan tour, parade activities for environment protection and poster-hanging at the booths of Tourism cultural festival - craft village of Ancestral land 2019 and tourist service establishments in Viet Tri city.

This is a necessary activity, contributing to raising the awareness of the harmful effects of plastic waste of local people, tourism staff and tourists; gradually reducing the use of  plastic waste and nilon; replacing by other eco-friendly materials such as reusable paper and cloth bags, compostable plastic bags and glassware. The restriction will contribute to building an increasingly civilized and friendly tourism environment, contributing to environmental protection in sustainable tourism development, responding to the Prime Minister's call for "anti-plastic waste" movement.
