An Nhien Farm
An Nhien Farm was inspired by a young Hanoi girl and her friends. In this place, enthusiastic and nature-loving young people have come together to build a positive green living environment, inspiring many people, especially the younger generation.
Here in this place, local youth, tourists, volunteers and farmers have formed into groups and replanted perennial forest trees and developed the vegetation.
An Nhien’s new project is “Recycling for livelihoods” with unique and environmentally friendly ideas. The ideas are making new bar of soap from leftover soaps; creating fabric products for health clinics, school uniforms, artworks from unused fabrics; making biodegradable soap from disposable frying oil; making washing liquid from unusable fruit peel.
From these ideas, An Nhien has also brought jobs and income sources for disabled women and disadvantaged groups in society. Especially, their grass straws are being used at many eating places in Hoi An.

Cu Lao Cham says no to plastic bags, plastic straws and disposable plastic products
For 10 years, people on this tourist island have said no to an indispensable item. From markets, stalls to every household’s home, they use other things to replace plastic bags.
The idea of no plastic bag was initiated by Mr. Nguyen Su, former Secretary of Hoi An City Party Committee at that time. At first, it was not bring plastic bags to the island, then came to the regulation of collecting 150,000 VND for people who intentionally bring plastic bags here.
Easy-to-destroy items, such as banana leaves, almond leaves (many on the island) and newspaper will be used to cover dry items. The biodegradable bags will be used instead of large plastic bags that visitors unintentionally bring along.
After many years of implementation, the environment on the island has changed markedly, being a green address, an eco-friendly tourist destination that visitors love. The ecological environment in the island is better protected and there are many positive developments.
