Vietnamese can easily adopt a zero-waste lifestyle

Vietnamese per capita plastic waste is the third highest in Southeast Asia after increasing more than 10-fold in the last three decades. Vietnam annually produces 1.8 million tons of plastic waste, but only 27 percent is recycled,

Each Vietnamese person consumed only 3.8 kg of plastic in 1990, but 28 years later this had risen to 41.3 kg, according to a report released on Wednesday by Ipsos Business Consulting, a global growth strategy consulting firm based in Paris.

In Southeast Asia, only Malaysia (75.4 kg) and Thailand (66.4 kg) generate more plastic waste than Vietnam.
