[China Packaging News] more than 40 enterprises with businesses in the UK signed agreements, promising to stop using disposable plastic packaging within 7 years to reduce plastic pollution

this "plastic agreement" was initiated by the British government, the charity "waste and Resources Action Project" and environmental activists. As of the 26th, 42 enterprises including British supermarket giants Tesco, ESTAR foods and Unilever have joined the agreement. These enterprises' plastic packaging products account for 80% of the total UK market

according to the agreement, ◆ in the process of experiment, 42 enterprises need to realize the recyclability or degradability of all plastic packaging in the UK market by 2025

the British measurement and control system also needs to complete the detection of the force on the sample (including the mean value of the force and the dynamic peak and valley value). The BBC quoted Max govel, executive director of the waste and resources action project, as saying on the 26th: "this requires a large-scale transformation of the plastic production system. Only when all links work together can this goal be achieved under its globalization strategy."

according to official statistics, British consumers use about 13billion plastic bottles every year, of which more than 3billion are not recycled, or are incinerated, landfilled, abandoned on the street, or enter the marine ecological environment

the British government announced on the 27th of last month that it plans to launch a plastic beverage bottle recycling plan this year to improve the recycling rate and reduce plastic waste pollution by charging a deposit

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on the 19th of this month, "plastic waste is one of the biggest environmental challenges facing the world". The British government has allocated 61.4 million pounds (about 540 million yuan) to study new ways to remove and reduce plastic waste

the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in Britain, which advocates recycling plastic waste, said: "focusing on innovation, improving packaging design and terminal recycling systems will not only be beneficial to the environment in the long term, but also create a lot of economic opportunities."
