The workshop was a dynamic platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas, offering a range of engaging activities aimed at equipping students with the tools to make a positive impact on our environment. The event featured insightful presentations by our partner – PLASTIC People, enlightening participants on the nuances of plastic classification for effective recycling. Additionally, the students had the opportunity to participate in a hands-on mosaic making session using recycled plastic materials, underlining the creative potential in upcycling.
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.
As the world grapples with mounting environmental challenges, collaborative efforts between businesses, educational institutions, and environmental organizations are pivotal in driving positive change. The Plastic Recycling Workshop at RMIT University stands as a shining example of such collaboration.
Looking ahead, PRO Vietnam and Annam Gourmet remain resolute in its mission to champion sustainable development through a spectrum of CSR initiatives and forthcoming events!
