350VYP – a great day!

This weekend was a special day for Hanoi. We had a big festival to start to welcome the celebrity of one thousand year Birthday Hanoi.  Birthday is on 10/10/10.  This was a big chance for us to combine the cultural festival with 350 movement to get to work. Thousands of people attended this festival and many, many people have attend “350VYP special class on how to make a paper bag”.
We are trying to inspire people reduce the volume of plastic bags by teaching them the way to make their own bags from old newspaper.  And we also give these recycled bags as a gift for people in the festival.
We hope that with our trial, people will use “paper bags” to replace plastic bags.
