In January 2020, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment issued a "Opinions on Further Strengthening the Control of Plastic Pollution". The "Opinions" clarified the three mission phases of 2020, 2022 and 2025. Among them, the goal of plastic pollution control in 2020 is to take the lead in banning and restricting the production, sales and use of some plastic products in some regions and areas.
The country is determined this time, and the relevant penalties for the plastic restriction order are quite severe. The relevant laws and regulations clearly pointed out that starting from September 1 this year, those who fail to comply with the state's regulations on prohibiting and restricting the use of non-degradable plastic bags and other disposable plastic products will be fined 10,000 to 100,000 yuan.
