My name is Lieke,
I am an environmental expert with a background in CSR and sustainability. I am passionate about nature and biodiversity, which inspired me to try to tackle the plastic pollution problem. As a professional, I help organisations solve environmental problems in a smart way.
Hi, I'm Julia.
After seeing the huge amount of waste in the textile industry I developed a passion for organic textile processes and a general interest in sustainability, waste reduction, upcycling and a less consumption oriented life.
I am happy to be able to support Rethink Plastic Vietnam.
ReThink Plastic Vietnam will be part of a long term solution by inspiring and engaging all stakeholders to take actions in their homes, companies and communities.
Vietnam is 1 of the 5 countries responsible for 60% of the plastic pollution in our oceans.
ReThink Plastic Vietnam is a community-led organisation aiming to create awareness and connect stakeholders from business, community, knowledge centres and government around the global plastic pollution problem which is heavily affecting Vietnam, its rivers, coastline and ocean.
Connecting 5 key stakeholders
The 5 stakeholders
There are so many great initiatives happening at all levels. academia does research, the government makes policies, businesses 'want to do something with plastic’, great social enterprises that offer concrete solutions and community that becomes more and more aware.
Together, we can make much bigger and quicker steps. That’s where RPV comes in. we are a multistakeholder platform and will create events to combine all these efforts, align interest and resources towards reducing single-use plastics in Vietnam
