release date: Source: Hebei

by the end of 2020, the use of non degradable disposable plastic straw will be banned in the catering industry nationwide; Non degradable plastic bags are forbidden to be used in shopping malls, supermarkets, pharmacies, bookstores, catering packaging and takeout services and various exhibition activities in the built-up areas of municipalities directly under the central government, provincial capitals, and cities with separate state planning... In January last year, the national development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of ecological environment jointly issued the opinions on further strengthening plastic pollution control

from January 1 this year, the "plastic ban" has been implemented. More than two months have passed, how is the market implementation in our province? How should relevant operators and consumers respond? Made a visit

environmental protection plastic bags "come on stage", disposable straw "change"

at 10:00 on March 23, Zhaiying store, Beiguo supermarket, Shijiazhuang. See, the green sign of "price publicity of degradable shopping bags" is posted on each cash register of the supermarket in an eye-catching position, which not only indicates the prices of different types of degradable shopping bags, but also bears the words "Beiguo supermarket advocates your 2.1.4 embossing: bring your own shopping bags with a durometer indenter and use degradable shopping bags" and "protect our common environment"

on January 1 this year, Beiguo supermarket announced through its official account that 32 stores in Shijiazhuang have fully launched biodegradable shopping bags, and the sale of the original ordinary PE shopping bags was officially stopped after the store was closed on December 31, 2020

it is found that compared with the disposable plastic bags previously used, the biodegradable shopping bags are softer and translucent. The words "compostable and degradable" and "biodegradable plastic shopping bags for non food contact" are also printed below the bag

"at present, supermarkets do not provide non degradable plastic bags. Because the manufacturing process of this new shopping bag is more complex and more environmentally friendly, the price is higher than that of ordinary plastic bags. We will also recommend customers to bring their own reusable shopping bags at the cashier." A cashier of the supermarket told that since the implementation of the "plastic ban" for more than two months, the number of customers with their own shopping bags has increased significantly than before

the following is introduced along with the functions: after visiting Yonghui supermarket and 36524 supermarket, we found that these brand chain stores have been replaced with biodegradable shopping bags. At the same time, many brand fast food restaurants, milk tea shops, coffee shops, disposable plastic straws have also disappeared. Even the plastic bags and lunch boxes used in restaurants have become environmentally friendly materials that meet the requirements, making people feel a strong "green" atmosphere

"we began to gradually replace disposable plastic straws before. Some drinks are directly covered with 'straws free' cups. Some drinks are provided with paper straws or degradable straws." The service staff of a beverage store in Shijiazhuang Dongsheng square introduced

in July last year, our province issued the "implementation plan on further strengthening plastic pollution control", which proposed that by the end of 2020, the production, sale and use of some plastic products would be prohibited and restricted in the built-up areas and key areas of Shijiazhuang, Chengde, Qinhuangdao, xiong'an New Area, Chongli District of Zhangjiakou City, etc. By the end of 2022, the restricted areas will be expanded to the urban built-up areas of all cities, the consumption of disposable plastic products will be significantly reduced, alternative products will be effectively promoted, and the proportion of resource-based and energy-based utilization will be significantly increased

our province has also put forward clear requirements for large users of plastic products such as takeout platforms. Among them, in the field of catering takeaway, our province encourages large takeaway platforms to take the reduction and substitution of disposable tableware as the audit conditions for merchants entering the platform, and add options such as "no tableware", "use biodegradable tableware" for consumers to choose

from meituan takeout, in the column of tableware quantity on the consumer side, the option "no tableware (energy +10)" is placed first, which is convenient for users to choose. Set up an environmental protection zone in the merchant side service market, introduce diversified environmental protection packaging suppliers, and solve the environmental protection purchase needs of merchants. In addition, the delivery platform is also piloting the use of film coated paper bowls with mature production technology to replace plastic meal delivery boxes, which will be piloted in some regions in the future

there is a lack of good and cheap substitutes, and the "plastic ban" still needs to be further promoted.

in recent days, field visits have found that although the "plastic ban" in large supermarkets and brand stores is slightly better, ordinary plastic bags are still used in farmers' markets, roadside restaurants and snack bars

on the morning of March 22, ordinary plastic bags of different colors were hung in front of each stall in a large vegetable market on Meiji street in Shijiazhuang. Ms. Liu's bicycle basket near her home is full. Each kind of vegetable and fruit is packed in a plastic bag. Roughly counted, there are nearly 10 plastic bags

market competition intensifies. "Now we are free to do stretching, tightening, bending, tearing, shearing, 180 degree peeling and 90 degree peeling experiments. We provide plastic bags. It is convenient and time-saving to put things in plastic bags. If there are no plastic bags or charges, customers may go to other homes." A vegetable stall owner said helplessly

not only that, as more and more people buy vegetables and fruits in fresh e-commerce, the use of plastic products can not be ignored. Three kinds of fruits were ordered on a fresh e-commerce platform. Except for a large plastic bag, each kind of fruit was sub packed with plastic film, plastic box and plastic bag

as early as 2008, the general office of the State Council issued opinions, stipulating that the production, sale and use of plastic shopping bags with a thickness of less than 0.025 mm will be prohibited nationwide from June 1 of that year; All supermarkets, shopping malls, market fairs and other commodity retail places are not allowed to provide free plastic shopping bags

after so many years, why are plastic products banned repeatedly? According to the analysis of relevant experts and insiders, the main reason is that the price of substitutes is high and they are not banned

at present, biodegradable materials are considered to be a powerful tool to solve plastic pollution. However, the survey found that the cost is still high due to the impact of market scale. "The price of degradable plastic bags is generally twoorthree times that of ordinary plastic bags, and the price will double when arriving at consumer places. At present, there is a lack of convenient and cheap substitutes as disposable plastic products." Some experts said

Fu Minghui, vice president of zhonghongji in charge of network operation, was deeply touched by this. As a catering enterprise that has operated for nearly 30 years and has 16 stores, it has nearly 700000 take out orders every year

when I came to Fu Minghui's office on Gongnong Road in Shijiazhuang, I saw that the house was full of takeout lunch boxes of various materials. "Although we now use takeout lunch boxes and plastic bags that meet environmental requirements, they are not completely biodegradable. At present, the company is also looking for more cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternatives. Many kinds of products have been tried, either the price is too high or the quality cannot be guaranteed." Fu Minghui said

he suggested that to promote the smooth implementation of the "plastic ban order", on the one hand, we should use lower price environmental protection products to occupy the market, so that the cost of non environmental protection plastic products no longer has an advantage; On the other hand, we should constantly improve the quality of environmentally friendly alternative products, so that plasticizer has ecological value without losing practicality and economy

"the original intention of strengthening plastic pollution control is mainly to guide the whole society to establish a green consumption awareness, reasonably and appropriately consume plastic products, vigorously promote the recycling of plastic and the utilization of renewable resources, and minimize the impact on the environment." An environmentalist said that green life can be promoted by establishing consumer restraint and incentive mechanisms. For example, businesses can encourage consumers to bring their own cups and shopping bags by means of points and exchange purchases, so as to reduce environmental pollution caused by disposable plastic products

it is also found that in addition to the reduction requirements, the "plastic ban order" has also been arranged from the aspects of design, production, manufacturing, circulation, consumption, recycling, regeneration, etc

insiders said that the causes of plastic pollution are complex, and the relevant governance can not be achieved overnight. To promote the "plastic ban" to achieve actual results, it still needs to be further promoted by relevant parties
