An abandoned bus in Hanoi's Ha Dong District has been turned into an environmentally-friendly cafe and attracts lots of customers.
Four years ago, Nguyen Duc Sam had an idea to build a cafe that uses mostly recycled materials and Hanoi Bus Cafe was born. Sam said he had the idea because of the amount of rubbish is increasing and threatening the environment. He also wanted to encourage young people to do more to protect their surrounding environment.
The old bus became the cafe and the tyres were turned into tables or plant pots while plastic bottles are flower vases. Moreover, the cafe has many books for customers and two guitars and an organ for music lovers.
