- "plastic limit" can not become superficial "formalism"

In the survey, the reporter found that in the catering industry, the use of plastic cups and plastic covers is very common, as netizens said, "the straw has been changed, but the lid and cup are still non-degradable disposable plastic materials." Such "environmental protection" has made many netizens suspect that the environmental protection actions of some catering shops are actually a superficial "formalism".
In this regard, the interviewed experts said that although domestic degradable plastic technology has made breakthroughs in recent years, there are still problems that need to be improved in cost and physical properties. Taking degradable plastic bags as an example, this kind of plastic bag has a high production cost and is more vulnerable than non-degradable plastic bags, and many take-out workers often tell businesses to "set several bags" when distributing food, resulting in substantial waste. Experts believe that non-degradable plastic products are still difficult to exit the market at this stage, which is also the reason why China has not yet fully "banned plastic". Similarly, on a global scale, no country is currently able to achieve a complete "plastic ban" across the country.
Many netizens left a message under the micro-blog survey initiated by this newspaper, saying that they very much support the cause of environmental protection, and are willing to pay the corresponding fees to promote the "limit plastic". However, with the substantial increase in the income level of Chinese residents in recent years, the past charge of a few cents and a dollar to limit the use of plastic bags began to have little effect, and it is difficult to play the role of price leverage. At the same time, the object of supervision is "small scattered", and the difficulty of law enforcement can be imagined. Wu Xian, director of the product quality and safety supervision and management Department of the Beijing Municipal Market Supervision Bureau, said frankly that as a large import city, if the country can not achieve a coordinated limit on ultra-thin plastic bags, the pressure of Beijing regulators will be very large. "Beijing has 2 million market players, and it is estimated that half of them use ultra-thin plastic bags." Such a huge amount, all the power of market regulators combined, man - to - man can not stare. Fortunately, the industrial adjustment catalogue published by the National Development and Reform Commission has been clear, limiting the production of ultra-thin plastic bags nationwide, which has alleviated some of the pressure on us."
In addition to the catering industry, the use of plastic products is also very extensive in the field of e-commerce, express delivery and take-out. The new "plastic limit order" requires that by 2022, a batch of replicable and scalable plastic reduction and green logistics models will be formed in areas where plastic pollution problems are prominent and emerging areas such as e-commerce, express delivery, and takeout. "At present, e-commerce express delivery enterprises and brand merchants are cooperating with upstream packaging supply enterprises to jointly promote the construction of a sustainable ecological chain in the industry, explore the application of recyclable express packaging, and develop large-scale applications to the country." Some takeout platforms are also studying and developing a recommended list of takeout environmentally friendly packaging and exploring the path of large-scale market-oriented recycling of plastic lunch boxes."
