It is not enough to deal with excessive packaging only by law.
recently, a news of "30 points" on CCTV attracted attention, saying that the waste of commodity packaging in China is very serious. Indeed, it is common to look around us. A bottle of wine, a can of tea, a few pieces of moon cakes, or some nourishing stuff, often raise the price and even become "sky high" through excessive packaging. CCTV said that China's "packaging law" is being formulated, indicating that this issue has attracted the attention of relevant departments. According to statistics, among the nearly 3million tons of garbage generated in Beijing alone every year, the packaging of various commodities is about 830000 tons, of which 600000 tons are excessive packaging that can be reduced. In the national annual municipal solid waste, packaging accounts for 30%. That is to say, excessive packaging not only poses a threat to environmental protection, but also causes a serious waste of resources. From the perspective of building an energy-saving society, the packaging law has reached the point where it must be promulgated. A few days ago, the national development and Reform Commission and other four ministries and commissions jointly issued an announcement, which made clear provisions on the price, quality, packaging and tying of moon cakes. The Mid Autumn Festival is not far away. In view of the market situation of moon cakes in previous years, taking precautions may play a positive role. However, over packaged goods are not limited to moon cakes. If this kind of announcement is adopted to stop over packaged goods, can the "stop" come through? Undoubtedly, the "packaging law" is the fundamental solution. Chinese people have always been happy to say that three new types of inorganic modified polyurethane high molecular new material tracks, FRP (1), FRP (2) and FRP (3), have been generated with international connections. In fact, many countries have established examples in product packaging management. Australia stipulates that the packaging space of products shall not exceed 25% of the product volume of 55 invention patents. Japan stipulates that the packaging cost must be less than 15% of the product price, and the Netherlands stipulates that 60% of the packaging materials must be reused. This is both concrete and macro. For example, Germany, which first advocated the recycling of packaging materials, has a "circular economy law", which stipulates that waste must be avoided first in production, otherwise materials or energy must be fully utilized; An important point of the "green tax" system first implemented in Denmark is the recycling of packaging materials... With so much ready-made experience as a reference, the formulation of the packaging law should not be difficult. Some experts believe that to solve the problem of excessive packaging, we should change the consumption concept of the whole people. In my opinion, what needs to be changed is the social atmosphere. However, for over packaged goods, local amplification is rarely used by themselves: any section on the experimental curve can be analyzed by local amplification; "Sky high price moon cakes" belong to the category of "don't eat what you buy, don't buy what you eat"? I believe that most Chinese people pay attention to the concept of consumption, and they really hope to build a market of 15.3 billion US dollars every year, but gifts - of course, gifts other than relatives and friends, are not. They have to be "hands-on". Businesses use some brains on packaging, and it is inevitable to artificially "enhance" the value. Therefore, on the surface, excessive packaging of goods is a freak born of the market, and in essence, it is the social atmosphere. If the social atmosphere cannot be changed, even with the "packaging law", excessive packaging may be difficult to ban at all
