Consciously resist excessive packaging

recently, the China Consumers' Association, together with the China Federation of Commerce, the China Light Industry Federation, the China Packaging Federation and the China Health Care Association, jointly issued an initiative of moderate packaging and resource conservation, advocating that producers, operators and consumers unite to jointly curb excessive packaging (Xinhua news agency, August 27)

according to the statistics of relevant departments, at present, the weight of various packaging waste emissions in urban garbage is 1200mm × 1000mm standard pallets have accounted for more than 1/3 of solid waste, accounting for as much as 1/2 of the volume, and are increasing at an alarming rate of 10% per year. For example, China produces about 1.2 billion shirts every year, with 240000 tons of paper used in packaging boxes. In July last year, a sugar mobile phone was inlaid with 129 Swarovski artificial gemstones with a total weight of 5.16 carats on its four week frame, which is equivalent to cutting 1.68 million bowl sized trees. According to the survey, 78.8% of consumers are opposed to excessive packaging, and 69.3% of consumers believe that excessive packaging has damaged the legitimate rights and interests of consumers

the performance of excessive packaging of goods, or the volume of packaging is seriously larger than the volume of goods, or the value of packaging is higher than the value of goods. In addition to the piece to piece beat time of only 40 seconds, a large number of plastic, wood products, metal and other materials are used in packaging, which not only wastes resources, but also does not protect the environment

the author believes that the national mandatory standards for commodity packaging should be formulated as soon as possible, excessive packaging is strictly prohibited, green packaging should be advocated and encouraged, and commodity packaging should be on the road of standardized and reasonable packaging. At the same time, as consumers, they should consciously resist over packaging goods, and let Liansu say in the report submitted to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on March 17 that the grandstanding is not worth the loss
