Zero Waste School
Zero Waste School is an initiative of the Vietnam Zero Waste Alliance with the goal of applying a zero-waste solution in school waste management, prioritizing the Refuse – Reduce – Reuse of single-use plastic products, the product is not needed or cannot be composted.
Relying on the idea that “recycling is not enough,” VZWA considers “zero waste practices” to be a sustainable solution that lays the groundwork for the creation of a circular economy model.
The youthful generations, who will be primarily responsible for the advancement of humanity in the future, are thought to be incubated in schools. As a result, it may be claimed that schools are crucial for imparting knowledge, altering attitudes, and encouraging young people to practice living more sustainably.
The Zero Waste School Festival is expected to be an annual event that brings together schools with the same concern about environmental sustainability. This activity encourages innovative solutions in waste management towards sustainability.
