It is estimated that between 19 and 23 million tons are discharged into lakes, rivers and seas every year. Microplastics are small plastic particles that get into food, water and the air. It is estimated that each person on the planet may receive more than 50,000 plastic particles each year. Discarded or burned disposable plastic harms human health, polluting ecosystems, from mountain tops to ocean bottoms.

Over the past years, Vietnam has been implementing many mechanisms, strategies, policies and projects to reduce plastic waste and protect the environment, typically the Law on Environmental Protection 2020 has added regulations. on the reduction, reuse, recycling and treatment of plastic waste; limit the use of single-use plastic products and non-biodegradable plastic bags; encourage the production of environmentally friendly products to replace traditional plastic products.
