Trash Bin Art with a Clear Message!

Students of several faculties at my university, the USSH Hanoi, have redecorated all trash bins on the campus. As a result, there are now not only small artworks but also clear messages regarding environmental protection.

Especially clear are some of the texts, such as „Find the Fish“ or „Warm your [heart] not your [planet]“ like on this trash bin:

Another example is the side of the same trash bin, stating „There is no Plan(et) B“:

"There's no Plan(et) B" Khoa học Quản lý (Faculty of Management Science)
“There’s no Plan(et) B” Khoa học Quản lý (Faculty of Management Science)

I am not exactly sure who is behind this project, but it seems that all or nearly all faculties have participated in this project.

Apart from the sometimes quite detailed artworks on the bins, students also often included labels for organic (hữu cơ) and inorganic (vô cớ) trash. I must admit I am not quite sure if these labels existed before. However, with some of the newly designed trash bin it will be really difficult not to see those labels (at least, if you understand them that is):

"hữu cơ" - "vô cơ" Chi hội K63 Việt Nam học và tiếng Việt (Faculty of Vietnamese Studies and Language)
“hữu cơ” – “vô cơ” Chi hội K63 Việt Nam học và tiếng Việt (Faculty of Vietnamese Studies and Language)

By far the cutest trash bin in my eyes was this one (on the left):

But enough talking. Take a look at the rest of the trash bins down below. I am happy to see some encouragement regarding environmental protection at my university:
