May 04, 2021 (China Knowledge) - Some 67 bln packages of all variations come from China’s booming online shopping, with 80% of these parcels delivering all over the country. If no action is taken, the number will balloon to a staggering 127.5 bln by 2025, leaving over a hundred million tons of carbon footprint.
The Chinese government has planned for carbon neutrality by banning non-biodegradable plastic bags by 2025, whereas non-biodegradable delivery bags and adhesive tapes will be outlawed at post offices by 2022 and be banned totally by 2025.
To aid transparency, e-commerce and food delivery service providers will have to disclose the information of single-use plastics slashed as well as the replacements that it used.
