About Marina Tran-Vu:
EQUO products are designed by harnessing the raw power of mother nature to replace single-use plastics. They are uncompromising in their mission – to provide a variety of truly eco-friendly solutions for everyday items. All of their products are 100% plastic-free, biodegradable and compostable. Simply – they’re here to rid the world of single-use plastic.
Marina Tran-Vu, a proud Vietnamese-Canadian, had the idea for EQUO in 2019. Her journey started when she went to Vietnam to help her family.
With the inspiration of trying to bridge the gap between Vietnam and the rest of the world, building a
sustainable future for her newborn nephew, working to support local economic growth and job creation
from her parent’s hometown, and the desire to raise Vietnam’s profile as a global leader in sustainability and innovation, she decided to venture on her own to bring to the world truly eco-friendly solutions.
