Southern Vietnam hotels unite to create plastic waste upcycling plant

The hotel industry in Vietnam’s Cam Ranh have joined forces to tackle plastic waste by establishing a local plant that upcycles all types of plastic waste.

The End Plastic Soup in Cam Ranh campaign, which kicked off with an extensive two-day clean-up of Long Beach on June 17 and 18, is spearheaded by Alma Resort, The Anam Cam Ranh and Mövenpick Resort Cam Ranh, and supported by 10 other resorts on the Cam Ranh peninsula.

Community leaders unite for the End Plastic Soup in Cam Ranh campaign

The campaign is part of the global environmental End Plastic Soup project, supported by thousands of Rotarians worldwide, with a goal seeking “no more plastic soup” in the oceans and seas and “no more plastic waste in our lakes, rivers, forests, parks and streets” by 2050.

The weekend beach clean attracted around 300 volunteers from participating hotels, Vietnam’s Rotary Clubs and local schools, with a welcome dinner for volunteers and the community held at Alma on June 17.

Alma’s managing director Herbert Laubichler-Pichler shared that Cam Ranh’s hospitality industry would work together with Rotary Club Saigon International to support Rotary-initiative End Plastic Soup to establish a plant in Cam Ranh to upcycle all types of plastics.

He said: “Alma and the local hospitality industry know it is crucial to do our bit to raise awareness about the damage plastic is doing to our stunning oceans, direct harmful plastics to upcycling efforts, and fundraise to help contribute to establish a plant here in Cam Ranh that will help the environment and the local community.”

Other hotels participating in the campaign include Aquamarine Resort, Cam Ranh Riviera Beach Resort & Spa, Selectum Noa Resort, Ana Mandara Resort Cam Ranh, Melia Vinpearl Cam Ranh Beach Resort, Radisson Blu Resort Cam Ranh, Swandor Cam Ranh, The Westin Resort & Spa Cam Ranh, Wyndham Garden Cam Ranh Resort and The Arena Cam Ranh Resort.
