Chinese Shoppers Pay for Green Environment
As usual, I was waiting for a supermarket cashier to help me pack my goods but this time I was told I had to pay 1.2 Yuan (around $0.17) in addition from on now if I asked for plastic shopping bags ($0.04 for each bag), which used to be offered for nothing by sellers. Cashing out, I looked around and found some penny–pinching or shrewd shoppers brought out their self-prepared shopping bags and put the goods in after footing their bills.
Previously I had learned relevant news that China would ban free disposable plastic shopping bags but I had thought it would be just red tape or window dressing and I had cast my doubt on its real implementation. However, this time China is taking a serious step to tackle increasingly grim enironmental problem—white trash.
Early this year China State Council has forbidden to produce or sell plastic shopping bags with thickness below 0.025mm in China nationwide after June 1, 2008. And Chinese shoppers are encouraged to use other environment-friendly shopping bags instead, such as cloth bags.
According to Waste Plastics Recycling Committee of China Plastics Processing Industry Association, on average Chinese consume 0.1 billion of disposable plastic bags for food shopping daily; meanwhile another 0.2 billions pieces are applied for other usage everyday. The staggering figures show Chinese produce humungous white trash and make the environment worse.
An online poll hosted by a Chinese website showed under the order more than 70 per cent Chinese will turn themselves from disposable plastic shoping bags to other durable ones.
The environment problems have taken their toll on China, and virtually every Chinese has paid them at a price.Though the new regulation brings a little inconvenience to Chinese shoppers, I believe green awareness will bit by bit instil into every single Chinese mind and China's environment will gradually improve. I double thumb up for the China’s approach to curb the environmental deterioration. China, go!
