HÀ NỘI — A Green Market on the theme of eco-space and recycling will take place in Hà Nội on Sunday.

It will provide information to the community about how to make eco-spaces at home and in the office, how to establish an eco-friendly lifestyle, and how to recycle rubbish into more useful household and handmade products. Besides attempting to change some old habits, this event offers a family-fun-day that everyone will enjoy with a recycling workshop, photo exhibition about the environment and a live music concert.

The Keep Hanoi Clean group will host the event. The group was established in May by James Joseph Kendall, an American who has strong feelings for Hà Nội’s environment, and wants to collaborate with Vietnamese youths to make the city cleaner, greener and more beautiful.

Up to now, the Keep Hanoi Clean group has a member network of around 8,150 people. The activists have already tidied up a lot of trash in local canals, rivers, lakes and streets.

The event will take place from 10am to 8pm, at the Mậu Dịch Restaurant, 81 Xuân Diệu Street. — VNS

 

One of two motorbikes James Joseph Kendall will auction at the Green Market, with proceeds donated to continuing environmental activities.
