Kitchen God Day 2021

Kichen God Day event 2021 infographic

To help prevent thousands of plastic bags from being released into Hanoi’s rivers and lakes, for the fifth year running we organised the Kitchen God Day Event (Ngày lễ Ông Công-Ông Táo 2021). Our determined volunteers helped make it a success despite challenges including a COVID-19 outbreak and poor weather.

Together we were successful in preventing 859.5 kg of waste entering Hanoi’s waterways!
