Vietnam - such a resourceful country

Apr 7, 2011 1:18:00 PM / by Vu Long Tran

I'm in Vietnam at the moment admiring how resourceful the citizens are here. Often we there is much wastage in Westernised countries such as where I live (Australia).

The things we take for granted are treasured, resold, repurposed. Nothing is wasted unnecessarily. Everything has a purpose, is placed or put there deliberately and there are uses for items that I would/could never have thought of before.

Given the number of citizens here I can see why this needs and is part of their way of life, many developing countries I assume are the same in their own unique ways. I would love to see it all one day and learn how to better utilise the resources that we have around us - not just for ourselves but for others around us as well.

I'll share pics and stories when I return so stay tuned!
