Young people clean up Son Tra Peninsula

03 April 2019 | 09:10:00 PM

More than 100 young people cleaned Da Den Beach at Danang’s Son Tra Peninsula on March 31.

They spent the whole Sunday collecting and classifying the rubbish into 300 bags at Da Den Beach. Because of rough terrain, the rubbish truck couldn't reach the site so they had to carry the bags to the collecting point.

Even though Da Den is a small beach, large amounts of rubbish are being washed up on it. Despite working hard since early morning, the group was only able to deal with two-thirds of the rubbish on the beach and planned a second visit next weekend.

Nguyen Xuan Phu, a student at the University of Economics, said, "I'm really happy to be able to join this activity and help clean our environment. I want to show other people that collecting rubbish is not a trend but a movement."

Vo Thanh An, the Facebook account owner who made the call, said he had called for people to clean Son Tra Peninsula twice before and received great responses, especially from young people.

He said, "I hope it will not end up being a trend to show off on Facebook. I hope it will encourage other people to act on their own and start their own cleaning campaign. We need real action to protect the environment."
