It is not only the packaging of moon cakes that should be slimmed down
to control the excessive packaging of commodities, it should reflect the systematicness of government supervision. Just because people are crying out for the control of excessive packaging of moon cakes, they can't force the "operation" of moon cake packaging, and there is no mandatory control of excessive packaging of other goods. As a result, they can only "press the gourd and float the ladle". This year, four ministries and commissions jointly issued an announcement to ban excessive packaging of moon cakes. With the Mid Autumn Festival approaching, the survey found that the packaging of moon cakes was "slimming down" in the sound of the ban, but the packaging of many commodities such as health products, alcohol, cosmetics, tea, books and so on became increasingly "obese"
in a large supermarket in Shijiazhuang, the items regard it as the treasure of revitalizing the aviation industry. A variety of health care products are placed on the shelves. A carefully "dressed" health care capsule gift box sells for 168 yuan, mainly for shipment. However, a generic health care capsule of the same kind is found on the counter of a drugstore, but each box is only sold for 78 yuan. A similar situation also occurs in the cultural market. In the two large gift book markets of Dingzhou and Cheng'an in Hebei Province, most of the books with exquisite packaging are priced at hundreds of yuan or thousands of yuan. According to insiders, some packaging accounts for 40% of the cost. It is understood that alcohol, tea, cosmetics, etc. also follow the trend to find "selling points" on packaging
some citizens commented that the government issued a special governance announcement on moon cakes because of their typical over packaging and most concentrated consumption. However, other commodities that pursue over packaging are still "obese" because of the insufficient supervision of relevant laws and regulations
according to media reports, Shijiazhuang produces more than 10 tons of all kinds of excessive packaging waste every day, and the packaging of many goods accounts for 60% of the cost, which is several times the price of unpackaged goods. Excessive packaging caused waste of resources and rising commodity costs, which were finally passed on to consumers by businesses, infringing on the rights and interests of consumers
relevant experts pointed out that the control of excessive packaging of goods should reflect the systematic nature of government supervision. Just because people are calling for the following measures to replace the sealing ring at the moment to control the excessive packaging of moon cakes, we can't force the "operation" on the packaging of moon cakes, and there is no mandatory treatment on the excessive packaging of other commodities. As a result, we can only "press the gourd and float the ladle"
