Students at a university in Hanoi have given recycle bins a creative facelift, as part of a campaign aimed at raising awareness of environmental protection among young people.

Many recycle bins at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in the capital have put on a new look thanks to the creativity of its students.

The activity is part of a program called ‘Nhan Van Xanh,’ or Green Nhan Van, which is inspired by the Vietnamese name of the school.

According to Pham Thuy Duong, deputy head of the university’s student association, the campaign encourages all members of the school to avoid littering, properly classify their garbage, and contribute to the protection of the environment.

Each group of participants was tasked with decorating a pair of recycle bins in the most out-of-the-box and meaningful way possible.

There are two bins where the trash can be sorted into two categories, namely organic and inorganic.

“The participants brainstormed to come up with an idea at the beginning of the campaign. However, all recycle bins turned out to be very beautiful, which captured a lot of attention,” Duong stated.
