amazing consumption of express cartons and adhesive tapes
pollution problems are becoming increasingly prominent
BOGO is the owner of an electronic entertainment store. Every day, he sends and receives dozens or even hundreds of packages. At noon on the 21st, as usual, he unpacked the package he received, took out the purchased package, and threw it into the trash can outside the store
at this time, the whole trash can has been filled with all kinds of express packages discarded by the merchants. What BOGO and other businesses did not realize was that the random act of throwing packaging has now become a big problem
with the rapid development of shopping, the problem of express packaging pollution has become increasingly prominent
according to statistical data, in 2016, the national express delivery volume reached 31.3 billion pieces, with an average annual growth of more than 50%, ranking first in the world. By 2018, this number will reach 50billion. According to the report on the development status and trend of green packaging in China's express delivery field released by the State Post Office, in 2015, China produced a total of 9.922 billion express packaging boxes, 8.268 billion plastic bags, and 16.985 billion meters of adhesive tape - 425 circles around the equator of the earth. The non biodegradable plastic bags and tapes used by the express industry each year can emit up to 20million tons to 30million tons of carbon dioxide
in contrast to the crazy growth of express pollution, the low recovery rate of express packaging. According to statistics, at present, the recovery rate of express cartons in China is less than 20%. Most of the packaging materials, including scotch tape, air bags and plastic bags, are sent to the landfill. The main raw material of these packages is PVC, which takes hundreds of years to degrade; If incinerated, a large amount of pollutants will be generated
ice breaking move
e-commerce and express enterprises recycle packaging
and give consumers some rewards
in fact, as the main participants in e-commerce, e-commerce platforms and express enterprises have been aware of the environmental protection problems caused by express boxes and tapes. In order to reduce the pollution of express boxes and reduce the waste of resources, various e-commerce platforms and express enterprises began to try from the source and the end of distribution as early as a few years ago
"our company uses a kind of hollow honeycomb carton, which, like honeycomb coal, can not only buffer, but also minimize the use of packaging materials." The relevant person in charge of deppon logistics disclosed in a cover interview with West China Metropolis Daily
the person in charge of a Jingdong distribution point in Chengdu said that for mineral water, dog food, printing paper and other goods that were originally well packaged, "directly pasting a face sheet on the goods without extra cartons is expected to benefit more people."
however, how to recycle the delivered express cartons deserves more attention
21, the relevant person in charge of Suning cloud business told that since 2014, Suning has carried out express package recycling in more than 100 cities across the country, including Chengdu, "recycling express boxes and fillings with the consent of users."
in June last year, cainiaolo, together with 32 logistics enterprises around the world, launched the "Green Plan" to improve the environmental protection of express packaging materials
the fast seasonal off-season is coming, and the attempt to deliver packaging for environmental protection continues. At the end of june2017, JD also launched the carton recycling business in Chengdu. After JD's delivery personnel deliver goods to the door, users can give express boxes and idle cartons at home to the delivery personnel. JD will also give consumers some "JD beans" as rewards. After the express box returns to the distribution station, it will be reused. The business was launched in Chengdu for one month, and 30000 cartons were recycled, up to 10000 in the first week of August alone
the cartons used in a express distribution station in Chengdu are recycled after use
on August 21, West China Metropolis Daily - the cover came to Jingdong Chengdu gaoshengqiao distribution station and saw thousands of packages piled up into a hill. More than 20 delivery personnel are unloading from the vehicle, sorting and loading the electric vehicle
"our distribution station usually needs to pack less goods, and the cartons are recycled." Ni Jianghu, the person in charge of the distribution station, told me
after the carton recycling business was launched in Chengdu, every JD distributor added a job content, that is, to introduce the business to users and try to recycle express boxes from users. "Especially for the users who pay on delivery and sign in face, as long as the users agree, we can bring the cartons back for reuse."
"if the user is not at home during delivery, you can also leave the carton at home and hand it over to the delivery clerk next time." Ni Jianghu said that the deliveryman can recycle up to 30 express boxes from customers each time he delivers goods. The operation of recycling cartons is also very simple. As long as the order number and the number of recycled cartons are entered on the handheld terminal device, the system will give users a certain number of "Jingdong beans" as a reward
"from June to now, our site will recycle more than 300 cartons every month. What the site can not use up will be transported to the warehouses in Pidu district and Qingbaijiang District for further use." Ni Jianghu said
cartons and plastic bags will pollute the environment if they are thrown away at random.
"return cartons and reuse them more environmentally friendly"
"in this way, there will be no waste. All of them will be handed over to the site for recycling." At 3:00 p.m. every day, Mr. Zhao would pick up his package at Jingdong gaoshengqiao delivery station. On the 21st, dozens of the cars he bought arrived. After signing, he did not directly load them. Instead, he opened each express box and took out only the ones inside
Mr. Zhao told that he did business in Taisheng South Road, Chengdu, and often snapped up on the Internet. "These cartons are useless for me to take back. They only take up space. They are opened at the distribution station and can be reused. I have saved space and achieved environmental protection, killing two birds with one stone." Mr. Zhao said that every time he picked up the goods at the site, he would dismantle the cartons casually. "It is the same with picking up the goods at other express points."
the more environmentally conscious users like Mr. Zhao, the better
"after the recycling carton business is launched, more and more self lifting users will leave the carton in the distribution station." The person in charge of the distribution station told me
Mr. Wang, who lives near the distribution station, is also a shopper. He works during the day. The delivery clerk usually puts the express package into the express cabinet downstairs. Mr. Wang can take the package home after work. This has led to more and more express boxes in Mr. Wang's home. "At first, they will be used to hold things, but when there are more, they will take up a lot of space."
not long ago, Mr. Wang learned that JD had launched the express carton recycling business. After listening to the introduction of the staff, he realized that throwing away the wrapped cartons and plastic bags would cause environmental pollution. On the afternoon of the 21st, Mr. Wang specially went to the distribution station, hoping that the delivery clerk would come to his house and recycle all the cartons in his house
improving consumers' awareness of
reuse is the key
"when communicating with users at ordinary times, some people don't understand why they want to recycle and are unwilling to cooperate." However, according to Ni Jianghu, the reason for the low recycling rate of express boxes is that more than 80% of users now pay online, and fewer and fewer users pay on delivery
it is relatively easy for users who pay on delivery to recycle express packages, while many users who pay online directly ask the delivery clerk to put the goods into the express cabinet. "You can't even see the users, let alone promote carton recycling to users and get their consent." Ni Jianghu told that at present, each delivery clerk at the site can recycle an average of twoorthree packaging cartons a day. "The recycling amount is not particularly ideal."
through observation, it is also found that most citizens throw away the packaging carton after taking the package and unpacking it; Some people will tear the cartons to pieces to avoid personal information leakage, completely cutting off the way to reuse the cartons
in the summer vacation of 2017, a survey conducted by students majoring in law at Nanjing University of Finance and Economics showed that 80.46% of consumers chose to discard the dismantled packaging boxes directly, 6.51% chose to save and sell, and only 9.66% chose to use waste
insiders also believe that improving consumers' awareness of actively recycling express packaging is the key to solving the pollution of the industry
