The average use time of a plastic bag is 25 minutes, but it takes at least 470 years for each plastic bag to degrade. About 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year. At this rate of development, by 2025, every marine fish in the ocean (calculated by one kilogram) will have 330 grams of plastic lingering in the sea where it lives. By 2050, the weight of plastic will exceed the weight of these marine fish.
However, the reaction of most people may be, "Fortunately I am not the poor fish in the ocean." What does this have to do with me? "Then let's talk about what will happen, these plastic wastes will flow back to your food chain in an invisible form, which may harm your health. Scientists call this substance "plastic particles".
An important source of plastic particles is the personal care products people use daily, such as scrub cleanser, shower gel, toothpaste, and cosmetics. Another source is polyester (polyester), nylon (nylon, or polyamide), polypropylene, chlorinated fiber, spandex (lycra), vinylon, and other man-made fiber fabrics.
Plastic particles are small in diameter, which can enter tissue cells and accumulate in the liver, causing inflammation and chronic depositional poisoning. It may also enter the blood, and when it reaches a certain concentration, it will affect our endocrine system.
All of the issues mentioned above are very sensational, but are you really helpless and can only wait to die?
In fact, it is not. The way to reduce all the pollution is to reduce the use of disposable plastic products. But for consumers, takeaway consumption patterns and habits have been formed, and reducing the use of plastic products is by no means a day's work. A feasible way to reduce the growing plastic waste in the takeaway and express delivery industries may only start from the source and put the production and use of biodegradable product packaging on the agenda.
Unlike plastic packaging, biodegradable product packaging can be biodegraded within 90 days in compost without causing any damage to the environment. The product itself can be used as household compost, and will not have a continuous negative impact on the environment during the degradation process. This kind of packaging can be processed by household composting or food recycling bins (does not need to be cleaned to remove food residues).
As a professional biodegradable packaging manufacturer, Zhiben now makes a sincere appeal to you to protect our mother nature together from using environmentally friendly packaging.
