Although this goal in today it looks completely impossible to achieve, but plastic damage to the environment can visually see: to Europe will cost 230 billion euros in 2030 to tackle plastic garbage, and 3.4 million tons of plastic waste will increase the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air. At present, Europe is the world's second largest producer of plastic (after China), within the scope of the whole of Europe, nearly 5 m enterprises and 1.6 million European people's livelihoods depend on the plastic industry chain, in 2016, the industry and even created a turnover of 350 billion euros.Will 80,000 workers face unemployment after the plastic limit is imposed?Throughout Spain, plastic products are an industry on which 4,000 companies and more than 80,000 employees depend, with a business volume of 26 billion orders. According to the European commission, according to data released in January among eu member states, produced a total of 255 tons of plastic waste a year, 40% of them were burned, 30% waste landfills, only 30% are recycled, that is, 70% of the plastic threat to the ecological environment.Worryingly, in countries with developed tourist economies such as Spain, 84% of the rubbish on beaches is plastic. According to Greenpeace, an environmental ngo, 96% of the waste in the bottom of the Mediterranean is plastic. Another shocking statistic from European Union experts: 94 percent of birds in the north sea in the north Atlantic have plastic waste in their stomachs.How long does it take for the plastic waste to decompose naturally? According to greenpeace's chart, things like disposable tableware, which we order for takeout, dissolve naturally for more than 50 years. Experts predict that by 2020, the amount of plastic waste left over will be 900% higher than it was 40 years ago, exceeding 500 million tons a year. So how does the eu deal with plastic waste?China says "no" to "foreign trash"!The export of plastic waste to China has long been the eu's answer to the problem. Over the past 30 years, China has imported large amounts of scrap paper, plastic and metal waste from Europe for re-production, but the historical period ended on March 1.According to statistics, Spain exported 35 million euros worth of plastic waste to China in 2017, and the customs said the weight reached 115,000 tons. Spain biodegradable and compost plastic association technical director Jordi Simon stressed that the biodegradable material while good for protecting the environment, but not plastic solution, also is not everything can use biodegradable materials instead of common plastic material to production.How will the crackdown on plastic waste affect Chinese in western China?Not only is the European Union acting to reduce the damage from plastic waste, but Spain is also cracking down on disposable plastic products. Podemos proposes a total ban on the sale and import of disposable plastic products, including disposable tableware, paper cups, straws, by 2020. At least 50 percent of plastic products will be made of biodegradable materials, which will rise to 60 percent by 2025.As soon as Podemos's proposals are approved, the business of Chinese restaurants, chinese-owned warehouses and hundred-dollar stores will be affected. Delivery just first saw the rise of Spain, packing box will ban the use of disposable, restaurants offer boxes must be recyclable product, this will increase the restaurant's operating costs, which leads to the increase in the price of delivery; On the other hand, the scope of Chinese warehouses and hundred-yuan stores will also be reduced.The more immediate effect is that the ubiquitous conveniences of life will disappear.
