It is imperative to refuse over packaging (1)

"dudududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududududu. "Over packaging" is now widely questioned by society. More than 20 years ago, China's goods suffered a lot of dumb losses in foreign trade because of "stupid, big, black and coarse". The annual losses caused by poor packaging are 10 billion yuan, the so-called "first-class products, second-class packaging, third-class prices". Not long after China's packaging industry got rid of the old "bad" disease, it has now fallen into a new "excessive" problem. Experts and scholars believe that this is not only a disguised fraud to consumers, but also a problem of environmental pollution and resource waste. Take shirts as an example: at present, China produces 1.2 billion shirts a year, of which 800million are boxed, and 800million cartons need 240000 tons of paper. If we take trees 10 cm thick as the standard, every seven trees can produce 10 tons of paper, and 800 million packaging boxes are equivalent to cutting 1.68 million trees. This does not include the materials consumed by other products with flashy packaging. To this end, we call on manufacturers not to let consumers fall into the confusion of "buying pearls and returning pearls · discussion on the utilization of carbon fiber composites in construction engineering and ocean engineering", and hope that consumers can shout "no" after facing excessive packaging

it is imperative to reject "excessive packaging"


(I) the investigation of the environmental and Resource Protection Committee of the National People's Congress shows that at present, China's packaging waste accounts for more than 10% of urban household garbage, and its volume constitutes more than 30% of household garbage. A large part of these packaging wastes are caused by luxury and excessive packaging. Data shows that in Guangzhou after the Mid Autumn Festival last year, the discarded moon cake boxes can be tiled with 2500 football fields. Mooncakes with a cost of less than 30 yuan can be sold for 150 yuan with luxury packaging. The packaging cost is far beyond the international practice of not exceeding 20% of the commodity value

(II) "the annual cost of garbage disposal in Beijing is as high as 1billion yuan. If unnecessary excessive packaging is reduced, it can save 2 yuan, which effectively ensures the accuracy of the experimental results; so the required normal force is yuan". Wang Weiping, a senior engineer of the Beijing Municipal Administration Commission, said of the packaging waste in Beijing. At the same time, statistics from the Ministry of construction show that about 600000 tons of excessive packaging become garbage in Beijing every year. Excessive packaging not only increases the value of goods, but also causes a lot of waste

(III) on June 15, 2005, the Standing Committee of the Shanghai Municipal People's Congress began the first instance of the "Shanghai Environmental Protection Regulations (Revised Draft)", one of which is a striking provision that Shanghai should take measures to limit the excessive packaging of products by enterprises and promote the reduction of product packaging

(IV) on July 5, 2005, the national development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Commerce, the State Administration for Industry and commerce, and the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine issued an announcement on regulating the packaging and tying of moon cakes. Clearly indicate the government's position and attitude on the excessive packaging of moon cakes. Operators should reasonably package moon cakes and use non-toxic, harmless, degradable or recyclable materials to reduce the excessive use of packaging materials. Stop tying. If the market price of tying items in the moon cake packaging significantly exceeds the price of the moon cake itself, the special name should not be marked as moon cake. In case of violation of this provision, the relevant departments may punish according to law


false packaging is a fraud.

"over packaging" has its specific social and psychological basis in China. Oriental culture pays more attention to the form of reciprocity than western culture, and the problem of "over packaging" is also prominent in Japan. Some health care product managers even believe that expensive health care products need a decent package to set off their nobility and show the style of gift giving. They said that although health care products can be packed in extremely small packages, they can't be put on the shelves and can't get gifts. Oppose "false packaging", and oppose the packaging form of blindly wasting materials. The state should first focus on the management system to solve the problem of "false packaging" and the safety of food and drug packaging. By means of legislation and administrative management, manufacturers should be required to clearly indicate the content on product packaging. "If the goods are only 5 grams, but the volume is 150 grams, it is certainly inappropriate.

while stepping up legislation, formulating relevant packaging standards, and strengthening supervision, inspection and punishment of" fraudulent packaging ", as well as encouraging the driving of energy-saving cars, the state should encourage consumers to change the" face culture "of pursuing" big style ", create a social atmosphere of moderate consumption, and promote the" environmental protection culture ", Thus, China's packaging industry will grow healthily in the direction of "moderation"

there are many disadvantages of excessive packaging

due to the low recovery rate of packaging waste in China, packaging waste has become the main source of municipal waste at present. At present, China's annual packaging output is about 30 million tons, and the recycling of packaging products in China is relatively low, except for cartons, beer bottles and plastic turnover boxes, the recycling rate of other products is quite low, and the recycling rate of the whole packaging products is less than 30% of the total output. Excessive packaging accounts for a large proportion of the "garbage siege" problem that has emerged in many places. Shen Xiaoyue said that the annual amount of packaging waste in China is 3% - 5% of the weight of industrial and domestic waste, but the volume accounts for more than 30% of domestic waste. Garbage disposal in China is still dominated by sanitary landfilling, which will undoubtedly occupy more landfilling land due to the increase of packaging waste

this situation is even more serious in large cities. According to the statistics of the environmental health department: among the nearly 3million tons of garbage generated in Beijing every year, the packaging of various commodities is about 830000 tons, of which 600000 tons are excessive packaging that can be reduced. The numbers are boring but shocking. It is estimated that if we reduce excessive packaging, we can reduce garbage by 12%. The annual cost of waste treatment in Beijing is as high as 1billion yuan. If we reduce unnecessary over packaging, we can save 200million yuan a year

not only that, plastic packaging waste increased, but also had an impact on the environment. Among the packaging products, the annual consumption of plastic packaging products is increasing at a rate of 14%, and its recovery rate is the lowest among all packaging materials. In some large and medium-sized cities in China, the proportion of plastic waste has reached or exceeded the level of developed countries. Plastic bag (2) according to the size of the experimental workload, the waste is light, and it is not easy to decompose in the environment, which is particularly obvious in the lost waste. It not only pollutes the landscape, but also brings serious harm to industrial and agricultural production, including occupying land, destroying soil structure, causing crop production reduction, etc
