With the current state of environmental pollution and living space, Vertical Garden's idea of ​​a vertical garden is a practical solution when combining high-tech applications into urban space, contributing to the enhancement of green areas, increasing the beauty of urban spaces, reducing dust, noise, and purify the environment.

With the idea of ​​​​making paper from banana trunks, HAB has taken advantage of the residual value of tree residues to create bio-bags and organic fertilizers that are both biodegradable to help protect the environment and have low prices. It is known that all research stages of the group are done by hand. In the near future, HAB will implement many new projects such as banana leaf food wrapping, distribution and extensive production to the community.


Closing the journey "Debate onmic 2021", the winner of the contest officially named Diep Phi Long - a student of class 24 of Tourism and Travel Service Management.

Fighting with large and small playgrounds, Phi Long confided: “In addition to making friends and winning prizes, these playgrounds are also a bridge to bring you closer to businesses.
