In the long run, the negative effects of excessive packaging can not be ignored. On the one hand, excessive packaging needs to consume a lot of paper, tape, plastic foam and other materials, resulting in waste of resources.
On the other hand, the excess and excess packaging recycling rate is low, especially the disposable packaging materials such as adhesive tape and plastic foam are often discarded, and this kind of garbage is difficult to deal with and difficult to degrade. It is likely to cause long-term pollution to water, soil and air.
In addition, some inferior packaging contains plasticizers, excessive heavy metals and toxic organics, which are easy to damage consumers' health through skin contact.
In fact, excessive packaging is not a new topic, which has long attracted social attention, and relevant departments are also taking positive action.
In March last year, the State Administration of market supervision and the State Post Office issued the implementation opinions on carrying out green product certification of express packaging; Last October, the "green product certification rules for express packaging" was released, which means that express packaging products have a green certification threshold.
In March this year, the measures for the management of mail express packaging was officially implemented, which defined the requirements for packaging selection, proposed the establishment and implementation of packaging management system, the use of environmental protection materials according to regulations, packaging reduction measures, etc., and encouraged delivery enterprises to establish and improve the working mechanism and recycling process to recycle and reuse the packaging.
Various measures have effectively curbed the phenomenon of excessive packaging and promoted the concept of green environmental protection to be more deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
Although the daily packaging is small, it is a big problem related to the green development of the industry. It is difficult to solve the problem of excessive packaging. Regulators, businesses and consumers also need to work together, do not abandon the small and long-term achievements, and reduce excessive packaging from the source, so as to make "light packaging", simple packaging and packaging recycling become a new trend in society.
