The ban on plastic bags has not weakened the growth of the plastic industry

after China issued the ban on plastic bags, the number of plastic bags used has decreased significantly. However, the debate between plastic bags and environmental issues is not the main economic obstacle of the plastic industry, because plastic bags are only a tiny part of the polymer application field, and the adoption of the ban on plastic bags has not weakened the overall growth of the plastic industry

plastic associations in some Asian countries believe that they have begun to reverse the situation in opposing the ban on plastic bags and other restrictions on plastic packaging, in which advertising and grassroots promotion play an important role

On September, Taizhou City, Zhejiang Province held the 23rd Asian plastics forum, which discussed the sustainable development of the plastic industry. Association leaders from several Asian countries said that in Asia, some governments that originally planned to impose strict restrictions on plastic packaging have gradually changed their attitudes, such as the Philippines and Malaysia

of course, in some regions, the government has actively invested in waste management systems, and the plastic ban is still in full swing. An official of the plastic India foundation said that the government has taken measures one after another in areas where the ban on plastic bags has been implemented, which has sounded an alarm for us

similarly, a leader of the Plastics Association said that in the face of the increasingly serious waste and garbage problem, if the plastics industry does not do more in this regard, it will be difficult to obtain public support

our failure in dealing with plastic waste has made the public no longer consider the commercial interests and industrial strength of the plastic industry. Jashim Uddin, President of the Bangladesh Association of plastic product manufacturers and exporters, said that policy makers often have a negative attitude towards the plastic industry

however, in some areas, the price of aluminum in plastic industry has rebounded, and the efforts of the industry and associations have made some progress. The Philippine Plastics Industry Association said that although it still faces some pressure, the negotiation with the government and other relevant units is progressing smoothly, and they have realized that they should pay more attention to the phenomenon of litter rather than plastics

some cities in Manila (the capital of the Philippines) are reviewing regulations on the prohibition of plastics, and some cities have announced that they will not adopt a ban. Said Peter qiuntana, President of the Philippine Plastics Industry Association. This is what we have done in the past four years, he said. We work with communities and churches. We have worked hard to communicate with non-governmental organizations. Some non-governmental organizations that originally supported the prohibition of plastics have changed their minds

in 2012, MPMA launched a campaign against litter, which will be further expanded this year, including public education on reuse, reduction and recycling, and publicity on how plastics can help environmental sustainability, such as making cars lighter, improving fuel economy, and reducing energy consumption

the main purpose is to change the negative attitude of Malaysian people towards plastics. MPMA spokesman EW said that we are glad that our efforts have made some progress, especially having a certain impact on the authorities, who are likely to change their minds. MPMA officials believe that most parts of the country have not followed the ban on free plastic bags in Penang, which is a success

although some people have a negative impression of plastic, in fact, plastic has brought great changes to our lives on the packaging side of $d* e b v J M. In daily life, nearly 40% to 50% of food is wasted due to improper preservation. The rational use of plastic packaging can not only ensure food safety, but also retain nutrition, extend the shelf life of food by 2 to 3 times, and effectively control the waste rate to less than 30%. I believe that it will continue to grow in the future

the declaration began to become inextricable:
