Hai Phong Area is situated in the Northern part of the country and includes one of the famous places of Vietnam: Cat Ba Island.

Due to the rapid growth of the region generated by tourism, the province is struggling to handle the amount of waste, mainly plastics. Without a proper management waste system, the landscape of the Hai Phong area is altered by littering, open burn.

To prevent ocean-bound plastic to reach the ocean, TONTOTON is developing its operations in collaboration with local waste pickers.

Rescued: 4 tons this year
Potential OBP: 500 tons yearly
