Grandma Li, a retired teacher, receives salary of 1000$ per month. With such a nice amount of regular income, she should have a decent life but the habit of being frugal never alters.Whenever she or her family goes shopping and come out with Plastic Packaging Bag, she would collect the bags and reuse them as trash bags.

This is a very good conduct that should be encouraged in our daily life. Using plastic bags loading garbage are very impressive doesn’t only help to reduce the work load of city but also reduce secondary pollution of garbage was gone. However, starting from June 1st, a system of paid use of Plastic Shopping Bags is implemented at all retail outlets such as supermarkets, shopping malls, and bazaars, and Plastic Shopping Bags will no longer be provided free of charge. Grandma is a bit upset. She can use the food basket to carry food in the market. But what is used to wrap garbage?
As known, more than 1,200 tons of domestic waste is handled in the city daily whereas 10% is plastic waste. All household garbage in Dongguan City has been transported to a designated Landfill & Waste Incineration plant for processing. In the Landfill, colorful plastic bags are mixed in the trash before the garbage is landfilled. It is a stunny sight. "There are too many plastic bags. Every day we push a bulldozer on top of the garbage, and the chain is always entangled with these plastic bags," said the staff. Another staff member said: “A lot of years ago, if you want to eliminate a plastic bag, there was basically no other way than to just use 'fire'. Now we have land filled it, but the non-degradable plastic bag would stay buried in the earth for 200 years. It will not rot."
In addition to land filling, 90% of the city’s waste is currently transported to waste incineration plants. Nearly a thousand tons of garbage are burned every day, and plastic waste is also mixed. Mr. Wang, head of China Environmental Monitoring Station, said that burning is not the best way to solve plastic pollution. The composition of plastic products is mainly polyethylene or polystyrene. During the combustion process, it will release a kind of "toxic smoke" that is harmful to the environment and human body. The best way is to use Biodegradable Plastic Garbage Bag.
