An exhibition titled “Plastic Planet” was held in Hanoi, aiming to raise public awareness of environment. In Vietnam, the amount and varieties of plastic wastes being dumped in the seas annually were so large that they would harm the environment and the ecosystem.

The organizers hoped that the beauty of the artworks will change the community's perception of waste. The exhibition’ artworks were made from nearly 300 kilograms of plastic waste such as straws, water bottles, nylon, compact disc and other items.

By the skillful hand of more than 60 artists, industrial waste was turned into inspiring works of art.

The participating artists hoped such events like ‘Plastic Planetexhibition could raise public awareness about the importance of the environment surrounding us./.
