HCM CITY (VNS) — The annual Green Consumption Campaign, which seeks to improve people's awareness about environmental protection, kicked off last Saturday at Co.opmart Foodcosa supermarket in HCM City.
The campaign, organised by the Liberated Sai Gon newspaper, the city's Department of Industry and Trade and Saigon Co.op, encourages businesses and consumers to be environmentally responsible.
As part of the campaign this year, the Co.opmart and Co.opXtra supermarket chains implemented six promotions from June 6 to 25 to increase consumption of products produced by enterprises that were environmentally friendly, Nhan said.
About 200 enterprises have joined the campaign this year, with more than 2,500 products, an increase of 15 per cent over last year, he said. — VNS
