PRO Vietnam and Annam Gourmet unveiled their plan to position plastic sorting bins throughout the RMIT campus. These bins will serve as collection points for used plastic, enabling responsible waste disposal and contributing to the creation of recycled materials that will be featured in the upcoming Annam Gourmet’s 20th-anniversary exhibition later this year.

Additionally, PRO Vietnam, together with Annam Gourmet, announced a plastic design competition targeting students across Ho Chi Minh City. This initiative aims to continue the momentum of the Green Projects series, encouraging students to unleash their creativity and propose innovative solutions for plastic waste reduction and repurposing.
