AEON MALL Vietnam to take action for World Environment Day

With the aim to respond to the annual initiative launched by the United Nations Environment Programme since June 5, 1972 called World Environment Day, AEON MALL Vietnam will co-operate with its partners at shopping malls to simultaneously organise a variety of interesting and practical activities contributing environmental protection.

Accordingly, each shopping mall of AEON MALL Vietnam in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will have unique ideas for the campaign. At AEON MALL Long Bien, special garbage bins to store used batteries will be placed in the shopping mall.

If used batteries are thrown into a normal garbage bin, after the garbage is buried, the components in the battery will penetrate the soil, reaching the groundwater and polluting it; or when burning, these components will cause air pollution. With these new bins, AEON MALL Long Bien aims to raise people's awareness of proper used battery handling.

Besides, normal garbage bins are also designed to be more eye-catching with separated compartments to classify garbage according to standard regulations in AEON MALL Binh Tan. After collection, these waste products will be transported to the factory for processing or recycling into small plastic slabs and continue to serve other purposes.

In addition, a series of events aiming to reduce the use of plastic products, such as using eco straws at all food court tenants on certain days or giving fabric eco-bags to customers will take place at three AEON MALLs in Ho Chi Minh City.

Responding to this campaign, booth leasing partners also offer many programmes to encourage customers to use environmentally friendly products: reduce the use of plastic cups by offering discounts or upsizing orders for free for customers who bring their personal cup while using paper bags to replace plastic bags and using eco-friendly straws.

Especially, the shopping malls will also organise many meaningful activities such as art exhibitions, garbage-design fashion shows, recycling craft classes, English-speaking contest for students on environmental topics, educate, and raise awareness of environmental protection.

Iwamura Yasutsugu, general director of AEON MALL Vietnam, shared, “When expanding the business in another country, green, sustainable, and environmentally friendly development is one of the core values that AEON Group and AEON MALL Vietnam pay special attention to. With the series of events responding to the World Environment Day 2019 at shopping malls, we hope to contribute to raise awareness and promote community action on environmental protection and sustainable development.”
