Increment of solid waste and luxury packaging of goods recently, I read an interesting story in the magazine "National People's Congress of China" hosted by the general office of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, saying that when checking the implementation of the law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste, vice chairman Sheng Huaren, who is in charge of environmental resources of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, made a vivid analogy on how to reduce solid waste, Thus, the dialectical relationship between reduction and increment of solid waste is explained very thoroughly

vice chairman Sheng Huaren said: it's like a child who wants to eat chocolate, walks to the store, points to a large chocolate box with luxurious packaging, and asks his parents to buy it for him. Mom and dad bought this big box of chocolates. 2. Precautions for the installation of plastic tensile testing machine are opened in front of the child. There is a plastic box inside this luxurious chocolate box. Then I opened the plastic box and found that there were several small plastic plates, each holding a few chocolates. And each chocolate is wrapped in several layers of tin foil. After layers of peeling, the chocolate in children's stomach is less than 10% of the whole packaging box, and more than 90% of the other solid waste will be discarded. Then, vice chairman Sheng Huaren said: the packaging of many electrical appliances is the same. A small electrical appliance needs to be packaged in a large size, which wastes resources and generates garbage, increasing the discharge of solid waste. To carry out cleaner production, we need to reduce such luxury packaging and reduce solid waste emissions. This is the relationship between the increment and reduction of solid waste... Ensuring parallelism... The author thinks of the Mid Autumn Festival in recent years from this interesting anecdote and its related information

the luxury packaging of moon cakes attracts people's attention every Mid Autumn Festival. I'm afraid that this is not just a commercial fraud problem that the price of moon cakes has doubled sharply and merchants are happy to make a lot of money after luxury packaging and tying various gifts in luxury packaged moon cake boxes. In other words, it is not just a problem that misleads or alienates mass consumption and makes the traditional festival consumption of moon cakes deviate from its original special needs of the public. It should be said that this is a serious social problem related to the waste of resources and the increase of urban and rural solid waste emissions, and a major problem related to the protection of environment and resources

why do you say so? Because no matter the luxurious packaging of moon cakes, chocolates and other foods, or the over standard and over capacity packaging of various electrical appliances and appliances, resources will be occupied. When these luxury, over standard and over capacity packaged goods are bought by consumers, the package heat treatment system after taking out the goods is mostly discarded by consumers, and the vast majority of them are difficult to recycle. Therefore, this not only causes a great waste of resources, but also makes it difficult to reduce the total discharge of solid waste, resulting in the increase of solid waste pollution in our living environment

it is precisely because of the above that we have to pay close attention to and seriously think about it

it is gratifying that the problem of increasing solid waste emissions caused by luxury, over standard and over capacity packaging of goods has increasingly attracted the attention of local governments and all sectors of society. Many places have begun to take corresponding effective remediation measures and achieved preliminary results -

it is reported that some places have begun to implement cleaner production in local related enterprises, And gradually reduce the amount of local solid waste discharge; Some places have strictly formulated corresponding systems to regulate commodity packaging, so that commodity packaging has laws and regulations to follow, thus creating a good legal environment for reducing the production of solid waste

in addition, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and other places have formulated or are formulating detailed regulations on packaging restrictions. Some places have clearly stipulated in their measurement standards for restricting excessive packaging of goods: the empty space in the packaging container shall not exceed 20% of the volume of the container in recent years, and the gap between goods in the packaging container and goods shall be less than 1 cm. Where the packaging volume significantly exceeds 10% of the commodity itself and the packaging cost significantly exceeds 30% of the commodity, it can be judged as commercial fraud that infringes on the rights and interests of consumers, wastes resources, increases the discharge of solid waste and damages the environment, that is, it should be punished in accordance with relevant laws and regulations

according to the author's understanding, some developed countries have passed legislation to regulate and restrict commodity packaging in terms of quality, material and volume. Internationally popular packaging regulations stipulate that the empty space in the container should not exceed 20% of the container volume, and the packaging cost should not exceed 15% of the product price. In addition, those who exaggerate packaging without reason due to technical needs are not only packaging fraud, but also a waste of resources and damage to the environment

now, the law on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste, which has been revised and adopted and implemented at the 13th meeting of the Standing Committee of the Tenth National People's Congress, clearly stipulates that "the design and manufacture of products and packaging should comply with the relevant national laws and regulations on production" and "prevent environmental pollution caused by excessive packaging"

in view of the above, the author is convinced that with the continuous in-depth publicity and implementation of the law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste, which was revised, passed and implemented, and with the continuous implementation of cleaner production processes in enterprises, especially food enterprises, the problem of solid waste increment caused by luxury packaging of goods will be gradually solved
