Dr. Vo Van Tuan - Vice President shared: “I hope this campaign “Van Lang Go Green” will spread out to all generations, from students to faculties, staff and lecturers in our school. Our actions to protect the environment today will affect future generations. I wish this theme will have a greater impact in the next coming years, not only as a short-term impact but as a good habit in daily life.”

The campaign “Van Lang Go Green” has 2 activities: garbage sorting program at source and small plan program.

In order to create a habit of classifying waste to protect the environment, Van Lang University arranges 2 types of trash bins: recyclable waste and non-recycle waste. Waste bins include food waste and other types of waste. Recycle bins include:

  • Waste papers:  paper boxes, cartons, used books and newspapers, etc.
  • Types of plastic: water bottles, household plastic products, product packaging, food containers, etc.
  • Metal (soft drink cans, iron frames, broken machines, aluminum, etc.) and glass
  • Old clothes and fabrics, etc.

Waste separation at source is a necessary activity in order to reduce waste to the environment, raise awareness about rational use of natural resources and save costs of waste collection, transportation and garbage disposal.

Sharing the same vision “Small action - big meaning", Van Lang University implemented a small plan program. Each school unit will be given a used paper storage box, which brings the great meaning of saving resources and protecting our green, clean living environment. This small plan program is the first step for other environmental protection activities of Van Lang University, not only with used paper collection but also with other recycled waste in order to bring benefit to the environment and people to spread out to the community and society.
