In 2019, 24 million tons of #plastic waste is produced by only 22 countries around the Mediterranean Sea. It has been a multiplication by 20 since the ’60s.

#Vietnam is 1 of the 5 countries responsible for 60% of the #plasticpollution in our #oceans with #China, #Indonesia, #Thailand, and the #Philippines.

Everyone, at its scale, contributes to stopping this massacre:

  • #Norway managed to #recycle 97% of its plastic waste for seven years. Citizens buy the content but borrow the container.

  • A Norwegian billionaire has built a yacht, in partnership with the #NGO “#WWF”, which collects 5 metric tons of plastic per day. When we know that every minute, nearly 9 million tons of plastic waste enter the ocean, the world needs more Norwegian billionaire.

  • The country of #Kenya. Anyone who is found using, producing, or selling a plastic bag faces up to four years in jail or a $38,000 fine.

  • Direct Imex decided in 2017 to develop the marketing of materials less known to the general public, but more #ecofriendly and reusable at competitive prices.

“Plastic bags are used on average just 12 minutes before being trashed”, claimed Christophe GIRAUD, co-founder at Direct Imex.

The company, which has been established in Vietnam in 2015, manufactures and exports shopping bags. Direct Imex accompanies companies from all over the world in the respect of the energy transition law by offering shopping bags in woven or non-woven polypropylene, RPET, organic bags, cotton bags… By being customizable, its shopping bags help companies in the diffusion of their brand or the promotion of one of their products. These bags are tailor-made with the on-demand printing of the customer, its desired types of bags, and options.

Several French famous brands from the mass retail sector have already trusted Direct Imex in the change of their environmental policies: Intermarché, Leclerc, Vittel.
