For two years now, Uyen has mastered only buying what is absolutely necessary. Household items that have not been used for half a year, Uyen has liquidated to make the space airy, and at the same time reminds herself to carefully consider the frequency of use before buying each item. “However, this year, I will break the rules, buy things I don’t need that others need to give them, or buy products whose manufacturers have programs to deduct a part of profits to contribute to the community or environment”, Uyen said.
Also wishing to contribute to the environment and community when shopping for Tet, Tung (Hanoi) plans to buy some Nestlé products to bring back to his mother and grandchildren for Tet (including coffee, tea, spices, milk, chocolate), knowing that the brand has a program to deduct 10,000 VND for each product sold to contribute to sustainable development activities for the environment. “I’m also busy, so it’s difficult to arrange for volunteering. Through a number of consumer brands and still able to contribute something to the community and the environment on the occasion of the New Year, I find it quite convenient,” said the engineer.
