SAY NO TO PLASTIC - A NEW CULTURE AT OASIS BAY CRUISE

SAY NO TO PLASTIC - A NEW CULTURE AT OASIS BAY CRUISE

Every year, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, the 2 most populated cities of Vietnam, use over 80 tons plastic bottles and bags of  each day (or 73,000 kilograms or 160,000 pounds) . On average each minute, 1 million plastic bottles are bought, and every year 5 thousand billion plastic bags are released into our environment. Humans have produced 1 billion elephants worth of plastic waste already.

 

There is an awful truth that we need to start speaking about, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, the 2 most populated cities of Vietnam, use over 80 tons plastic bottles and bags of  each day (or 73,000 kilograms or 160,000 pounds) . On average each minute, 1 million plastic bottles are bought, and every year 5 thousand billion plastic bags are released into our environment. Humans have produced 1 billion elephants worth of plastic waste already.

In Vietnam, our way of life, our culture, is where traditional markets and small vendors are the main feature of our economy. We go to the market everyday, not weekly like many other countries. Now imagine this: a husband or wife goes to the market for their family and buys 100 grams of meat - the seller then uses a plastic bag so you may bring it home. Let’s multiply it by 365 days a year. And that is just one item that we buy daily, amongst many of the other products. Think about how many little bags become garbage in just one day.

It is easy to blame the education on the government, but it MUST also be put on the consciousness of the consumers and suppliers.
Environmental campaigns usually happen as a short trend and do not last long enough to raise the awareness of the people.

So, Oasis Bay as a collective, would like to improve upon the situation in this beautiful corner of the globe. It will be small operations like our own, coming together to make many little impacts that will shift the mindset and perspectives of a nation and the globe. You might have seen this model in many countries but here in Halong, we believe we are the first organisation put this on-board. For the second half of 2019 Oasis Bay has already committed $45,000USD towards this new project and we ask you to join us in our commitment to not only stop, but to also start to reverse our ecological situation. 


So, instead of paying for every single use plastic bottle of water, we provided RECYCLED AND REUSABLE plastic bottle along with Refill Stations available for you to use anytime day and night.
They are made in Vietnam, each one comes in a reusable carrying pouch made of 100% sustainably grown plant fibers.
With only couple bucks, the messages to reduce the use of single use plastics and save the ocean can expand wider. More than that, you are contributing for a higher purpose, helping us SAVE THE BAY, save our beautiful ocean.
