Plastic bags are one of the most frequently used plastic products. Many countries and regions first took plastic bags.

Some countries even have people wearing plastic bags walking down the street, calling on people and the government to pay attention to plastic pollution.

Since October 2015, the UK government has implemented a “plastic limit order” in most retail stores, charging 5 pence (about 0.5 yuan) for each disposable plastic bag. Since then, the consumption of plastic bags in major supermarkets has been greatly reduced.

On July 20 this year, Panamanian supermarkets, pharmacies and retail stores began to ban the use of disposable plastic bags, becoming the first Central American country to be banned from pollution.

With the further upgrading of plastics, many countries have not only pointed the plastic-shaped Russian spears to plastic bags, but also began to develop on disposable tableware. We all know that disposable products are used in a wide range of applications, especially in catering and beverages.

The British government plans to ban plastic straws, stir bars and plastic swabs from April 2020.

According to estimates by the UK Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the British use about 4.7 billion plastic straws, 316 million plastic stir bars and 1.8 billion plastic sticks per year.

In March of this year, the European Union approved a bill that decided to ban the use of disposable plastic products, including disposable tableware, from 2021.

The Canadian government announced on June 10 that the country will ban the use of a variety of disposable plastic products, including disposable tableware, straws, etc., starting in 2021.

In Amsterdam, the “Plastic Whale” project has been in existence for 8 years and has attracted 20,000 people. On a boat painted with a smiling water-jet whale pattern, the participants salvage plastic and other garbage while sightseeing.

Founder Smidt said that thousands of "amateur fishermen" last year salvaged 46,000 plastic bottles to clean the canal.

In Rome, the traffic department opened three plastic bottle recycling machines at the subway station on July 23. After the passengers download the relevant application on the mobile phone, throw the plastic bottle into the machine and scan the code with the mobile phone. There will be “money” credits, which can be exchanged for subway or bus tickets. Throw in 30 bottles enough to redeem a subway ticket.

The Director of the Rome Transportation Bureau, Paul Sini, is proud to say: "In the age of talking about cryptocurrencies, we have plastic money."
