Guangzhou supermarkets and shopping malls consume an astonishing number of disposable plastic bags every day

in recent days, tens of thousands of disposable plastic bags are consumed in major supermarkets and shopping malls in Guangzhou every day, and the pollution caused is also amazing

our reporter, Qu Jianyan, interns Liang Shuang, Che Lin, Huang bingle reported: during the National Day holiday, many supermarkets and shopping malls in Guangzhou have set new sales records. However, citizens' enthusiastic consumption has also caused "sequelae" -- the survey found that in recent days, the disposable plastic bags consumed by major supermarkets and shopping malls in Guangzhou have broken "10000" every day, causing amazing pollution, which has cast a "white" shadow on this National Day holiday

(9) 10min cyclic torque variable consumption of 100 yuan takes five plastic bags

during the National Day holiday, and the experimental direction of the two samples is parallel to the sliding direction and the system is just not under force. The investigation of many large supermarkets in the city found that the consumption of disposable plastic bags also surged with the increase of commodities purchased by citizens. According to Miss Li, the head of the cashier department of Carrefour supermarket Wanguo store, in recent days, the average daily consumption of disposable plastic bags in supermarkets is about 20000, thousands more than usual. The situation of major supermarkets in Guangzhou such as Jusco, PARKnSHOP, Wanjia, trust mart and Hongcheng is also the same, and the disposable plastic bags consumed every day have also broken the "10000" record

the increased consumption of plastic bags in holiday supermarkets is only a microcosm of the abuse of plastic bags by Guangzhou citizens. A survey and analysis from the Guangzhou environmental protection department showed that when citizens spend 100 yuan in supermarkets, Shanghai people take an average of 4 plastic bags, Beijing people take an average of 4.5 bags, while Guangzhou people take 5 bags. It is estimated that Guangzhou produces nearly 20million plastic bags every day and nearly 7billion plastic bags a year, making it one of the cities with the most serious "white pollution"

no business dares to provide plastic bags for a fee

in order to control the abuse of disposable plastic bags by citizens, the Guangzhou environmental protection department proposed at the beginning of the year that supermarket plastic bag charges will be gradually implemented from this year. However, this year is almost over, and no supermarket in the city is willing to "eat crabs" and provide customers with plastic bags for a fee

a person in charge of a supermarket told that the general large plastic bag can bear about 5 kg of items, and if you make full use of space, you can hold a lot of things. But customers often think that plastic bags are not solid, and would rather have several separate packages. Some clerks patiently explained, but the guests misunderstood them as "too stingy". Before citizens reached a consensus on the paid use of plastic bags, businesses generally believed that this was risky and might lead to the loss of guests

earlier, Guangzhou ark market research company visited 500 citizens in Guangzhou to understand their views on the charging of plastic bags in supermarkets. 22.5% of Guangzhou citizens said that "it is worth advocating, which is to enhance consumers' awareness of environmental protection"; However, nearly 80% of other consumers do not support charging

paid use can effectively reduce the use of plastic bags

controlling the use of plastic bags through economic levers is an internationally accepted effective way to eliminate "white pollution". At present, some domestic cities such as Shanghai and Qingdao have also begun to gradually implement the paid use of plastic bags in supermarkets, charging 1 jiao to 5 jiao for each plastic bag. Now these cities have achieved initial results in the control of plastic bag waste. Many environmentalists believe that the abuse of plastic bags in Guangzhou is more serious, and the government should legislate to promote this

Guangzhou Environmental Protection Bureau believes that the implementation of paid use of plastic bags is a win-win for "businesses, customers and society". Because at present, supermarkets provide plastic bags free of charge. At present, as long as they are not monopoly industries, the cost of plastic bags has been included in the business costs. In fact, the cost of plastic bags is spread to the price of each commodity, and ultimately the customer pays the bill. If the plastic bag is taken out and charged separately, it will no longer be included in the business cost, thus reducing the business cost, which will eventually be reflected in the commodity price
