The environmental impact of extensive use of disposable tableware

The environmental impact of disposable tableware is mainly prominent in the following two aspects: One is the continuous damage to the soil and water sources because of the continuous damage to the soil and water sources because of the waste of the fast food lunch boxes and other compounds made of polyethylene compounds, because they are difficult to degrade in the natural environment. Second, disposable chopsticks made of wood are difficult to recycle. The chain-like waste and destruction of vegetation, environment, and climate caused by cutting down forests and trees and other green limited resources. ) The harm of disposable plastic lunch boxes: Disposable plastic lunch boxes will cause huge damage to the environment, so is it absolutely harmless to the firmware? The facts tell us that the answer is not so. A new scientific research result shows that the raw material for making disposable plastic lunch boxes: polystyrene is a carcinogenic environmental hormone substance. Experiments have shown that this type of tableware can cause the production of dioxin (dioxin) at a high temperature below 65°C, and it is the “most fierce” carcinogen that has been repeatedly mentioned by the media not long ago.

   Not only that, because the Chinese government is beginning to restrict the production of disposable plastic lunch boxes, it is very likely that the lunch boxes used in the market are those produced by illegal underground processing plants. As a result, product quality, especially hygiene, has also become a problem. In summary, disposable plastic lunch boxes are extremely harmful to the environment and health.

Disposable tableware has very serious safety and quality problems. The main reason is that, first, there are major problems in sanitary performance. The addition of a large amount of calcium carbonate, industrial paraffin, and recycling waste to the production raw materials leads to the evaporation of product residues (n-hexane). , Acetic acid) seriously exceeds the standard; second, poor performance, unqualified load, large volume deviation, and leakage; third, unqualified degradation performance, some companies use calcium carbonate-filled products as degradation products, and this The product cannot really degrade.

(2) The hazards of disposable chopsticks: Disposable chopsticks hide three major hazards: damage to respiratory function: the production of disposable chopsticks must be fumigated with sulfur, so when heated during use, SO2 will be released, which will erode the mucosa of the respiratory tract; damage digestion Function: Disposable chopsticks are bleached with hydrogen peroxide during the production process. The hydrogen peroxide is strongly corrosive and corrodes the mouth, esophagus and even the gastrointestinal tract; the use of talcum powder in the polishing process can remove dirt and slowly accumulate in the human body. People suffer from gallstones. Germ infection: The shelf life of sterilized disposable chopsticks is up to 4 months. Once the shelf life has passed, it is likely to carry Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli and hepatitis.

   (3) The harm of disposable plastic bags: Plastic bags do bring convenience to our lives, but the convenience at this time brings long-term harm. Plastic bags have low recycling value. In addition to being scattered on urban streets, tourist areas, water bodies, and on both sides of roads and railways to cause “visual pollution” pollution during use, they also have potential hazards. The plastic has a stable structure, is not easily degraded by natural microorganisms, and does not separate in the natural environment for a long time. This means that if waste plastic garbage is not recycled, it will become pollutants in the environment and will permanently exist and accumulate, which will cause great harm to the environment.

   One, it affects the development of agriculture. The continuous accumulation of waste plastic products mixed in the soil will affect the absorption of nutrients and water by crops, resulting in reduced crop yields. Second, it poses a threat to the survival of animals. Waste plastic products thrown away on land or in water bodies are swallowed as food by animals, leading to their deaths. Last year, there were 20 herders on the banks of Qinghai Lake and nearly 1,000 sheep died as a result, and the economic loss was about 300,000 yuan. Sheep like to eat the oily residue wrapped in plastic bags, but they often eat them together with the plastic bags. Because the plastic they eat stays in the stomach for a long time and is difficult to digest, the stomachs of these sheep are packed and can no longer eat. Things can only be starved to death in the end. Such things are not uncommon in zoos, pastoral areas, rural areas, and the ocean. Third, landfilling waste plastics will not only occupy a large amount of land, but the occupied land will not be restored for a long time, which will affect the sustainable use of land. If the waste plastic products that enter the domestic garbage are buried, they will not be degraded for 200 years.
