its electrical insulation is not affected by temperature @ Haizi: a few days ago, I cleaned up the plastic bags that had been stored at home for a year. I didn't know if I didn't tidy them up. After finishing, I was surprised that there were thousands of them. The family of three who are not very open usually only buy vegetables and fruits on weekends. They all have so many plastic bags. The extended families who have been open for many years don't know how much they have used

verification: what will you do with the plastic bags returned from shopping for vegetables, fruits and other commodities, throw them away or reuse them@ Haizi tidied up all the clean plastic bags because he wanted to help his family sell oranges. Only then did he know that a family had to use thousands of plastic bags at least a year. Since June 1, 2008, the "plastic restriction order" has been implemented for more than 8 years. Why is the consumption of plastic bags so large so far

thousands of plastic bags are collected in a year

@ Haizi said that at this time of year, her mother sells her own oranges. At this time last year, when more than 6000 kilograms of oranges in her family were sold out, it cost hundreds of yuan to buy plastic bags. After that, she began to collect plastic bags from shopping for vegetables, fruits and other commodities, large and small, in a large plastic bag. A few days ago, she sorted out these plastic bags. The result was startled. She probably counted more than 700 small ones and more than 200 large ones. In addition, she used up more than 1000 plastic bags in a year

"my family usually only opens on weekends, so I only buy vegetables once or twice a week. I didn't expect there were so many plastic bags."@ Haizi said that most of these sorted plastic bags can be reused. So she sorted out 500 oranges and sold them to her mother. Unfortunately, many customers don't like oranges in old plastic bags. They say they are wrinkled. No way, @ Haizi had to buy a new bundle of plastic bags

take back at least five plastic bags when buying vegetables at a time

it is understood that at present, the plastic bags in citizens' homes are mainly brought back from the vegetable market, and most of them buy fruits and vegetables. Ms. Shen, a citizen, said that when you go to buy vegetables once, you usually carry back at least five plastic bags. When you buy three kinds of vegetables, you will have three plastic bags. With spices such as green onions and ginger and meat dishes such as fish and meat, you will have more than five at once. When I buy a lot, I have more than a dozen plastic bags. These plastic bags are used to hold garbage or other things. The small ones are useless. They are basically thrown into the trash can. In addition to buying vegetables and fruits, many shopping now use plastic bags. Some non fragile products such as clothes are packed in plastic bags. It is normal for citizens who buy many times to receive dozens of plastic bags a year

Ms. Jia, a vegetable grower in Jiangdong Town, Jindong District, said that now all vegetables have to bring their own plastic bags, otherwise customers come empty handed and there is no place to pack vegetables. Some customers take two if one is not enough. However, many customers bring their own environmental protection bags to buy vegetables, so large plastic bags save a lot. For example, she grows vegetables and sells snacks all year round. At least hundreds of large and small plastic bags are used at the same time

the consumption of plastic bags in supermarkets is decreasing year by year

according to Zhejiang futailong supermarket chain Co., Ltd., the consumption of plastic bags in supermarkets has decreased year by year after the implementation of the "plastic restriction order" for more than 8 years. In 2007, the company used 10 million plastic bags of three types, large, medium and small. In 2008, after the implementation of the "plastic restriction order", it was reduced to 3 million, a decrease of more than 2/3. In 2014 and 2015, there were about 1.79 million. The relevant person in charge of the company told that since plastic bags have been paid for use, the elderly who buy goods in supermarkets now bring their own environmental protection bags, but young people rarely bring environmental protection bags when they go out, so they will still pay for goods in supermarkets. In order to reduce the consumption of plastic bags and advocate customers to use environmental protection bags, supermarkets spend a lot of money to buy environmental protection bags for customers every year. In many years, up to 1 million environmental protection bags are given away every year

it is understood that at present, in addition to supermarkets, hospitals and other units also implement the "plastic restriction order" in accordance with the regulations, but farmers' markets, pharmacies, fruit supermarkets and other shopping places are still provided to consumers free of charge, and most of the plastic bags in residents' homes come from these places

"plastic restriction order" why can not eliminate "white pollution"

"plastic restriction order" has been unable to eliminate "white pollution" for so many years. Why? Ji Junhui, director of the National Engineering Research Center for engineering plastics, once disclosed to the media: "Since the implementation of the 'plastic restriction order' in 2008, the annual reduction has accounted for less than 10% of the total production. The 'plastic restriction order' implemented through the price lever has certainly had an effect, but it is quite embarrassing. First, the price elasticity behind the paid use of plastic bags is not enough to deter people. The price of plastic bags of a few cents may have a certain impact on some budget minded elderly people, but for most people, especially young people , I'm afraid it's very little to consider purely from the economic point of view‘ The plastic restriction order can be easily supervised in large supermarkets and regular shopping malls, but it is difficult to implement in some free markets, small shops and vendors. "

relevant experts said that in order to truly curb the rampant white pollution, we must refine the existing laws and regulations and increase punishment. All departments need to cooperate and adopt various means to attract consumers to participate consciously
