Spuntree shares today's news with you. Star with the same type of straw.The company was founded 20 years ago. It specializes in the production of paper strawswheat straws and disposable paper cups and paper plates. It can be customized according to customer needs. The products are exported to European and American markets, Southeast Asian markets, and customers.

On August 29, according to foreign media reports, Marriott International, the world's largest hotel chain, said on Wednesday that it would abandon disposable washing bottles as part of its plan to reduce environmental impact.

These plastics will be removed by the staff and sent to the recycling station after use, but in practice, many US cities currently send most of the plastic marked as recycled to landfills or incinerators.

Arne Sorenson, Group President and CEO, said: “Our guests want us to make changes that bring meaningful changes to the environment without sacrificing their quality service and experience. ”

The chain estimates that this will prevent about 500 million small bottles from entering the landfill each year and will reduce current plastic use by 30%.

The move is an extension of the policy that the chain of economic brands first launched in January 2018. In July 2018, the company passed a plan to remove plastic straws and plastic bags from the hotel.

Plastic products take more than 400 years to degrade, and putting plastics into the recycling bins in fact can't really be recycled, especially since China stopped importing millions of tons of plastic waste in 2018.

A recent study published in Science Progress estimated that by 2015, the global total amount of plastic waste was about 630 million tons, only 79% in landfills or the environment, 12% were burned, and only 9% were Recycling.
