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 organization 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

we have seen it last year: 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
