Dubbed the green jewel of Vietnam’s northeastern waters, Co To in Quang Ninh Province has become a popular tourist site in recent years, attracting both domestic and foreign visitors.

With a target of turning the island into an eco-tourism destination, local authorities have called on local residents and visitors to limit the use of plastic products and instead focus on using environmentally-friendly products.

The island will pilot a programme banning visitors from bringing plastic products to the area from September 1.

Co To follows in the footsteps of Cu Lao Cham Island in the central province of Quang Nam which also asked all travel companies and visitors to refrain from using plastic bags in 2011.
