Global Textile network June 19 on June 15, the relevant State departments issued an urgent notice requesting the market to set up'Limited plastic'Report the phone and publicize it in the market. Merchants will be held accountable for providing unqualified plastic bags and free plastic bags. This is a long way to go. After the formal implementation of the plastic restriction order, non-woven fabrics quickly entered the people's field of vision with their convenience and durability, and manufacturers have publicized their environmental protection and pollution-free, which can be completely decomposed and free of residue in a very short period of time, at one time, it was considered as the best substitute for plastic bags and was called'Environmental protection bag'. However, is non-woven shopping bags really environmentally friendly? In the short year after the non-woven fabric was favored and plastic-limited, cotton bags and paper bags were thrown out because they were not waterproof. Substitute plastic'Ranks. However, non-woven shopping bags with bright colors and different shapes gradually went from behind the scenes to the front of the stage and became household names. 'Environmental star'. According to the estimation of China Plastic Processing Industry Association, the future market demand for degradable plastic packaging products in China is about 2 million tons. According to the average price of 20 thousand yuan per ton, the national market will have a huge business opportunity of 40 billion yuan. For non-woven fabrics with short process flow, high output, wide source of raw materials, long service life and degradable, its potential to replace the ultra-thin plastic bag market is self-evident. So, what is the non-woven fabric? The reporter consulted the information and learned that non-woven fabrics, a chemical fiber product, are oriented or randomly supported by textile staple fibers or filaments to form a fiber mesh structure, then it is reinforced by mechanical, thermal or chemical methods. In the face of the new policy of plastic restriction, it seems that everyone has seen business opportunities. An industry operator said that the cost of an A4-sized non-woven shopping bag is about 1 yuan, while the price of bags sold in supermarkets ranges from 3 yuan to 5 yuan. It is understood that in the coastal area of Zhejiang, some processing factories that originally produced luggage, even many garment factories, also aimed at non-woven business opportunities and began to turn to the production of non-woven products. In order to seize the huge market of non-woven products, Carrefour, Metro, Wal-Mart and other international supermarket giants have also launched their own brand non-woven shopping bags. At the checkout counters of supermarkets such as Carrefour and Yichu Lotus in Beijing, various non-woven bags are hung at a price of 3. 5 yuan to 5 yuan around, some also take' Use the shopping receipt to exchange environmental protection bags' Such measures to improve consumers' enthusiasm for using environmental protection bags. On June 15, Metro (China) It also announced that from now on, the sale of plastic bags in 38 shopping malls across the country will be completely stopped. This also means that in the future, consumers may not be able to buy plastic bags in some supermarkets. In fact, it is not cloth. On the one hand, major businesses purchase and distribute in large quantities. On the other hand, more and more consumers are shopping with non-woven bags. However, Zhu Minru, chairman of the China Association for Industrial Textiles, publicly appealed that the production of non-woven bags should also pay attention to cost issues, functional issues such as waterproof, oil-proof, anti-fouling, and recycling issues. So, I Non-woven bags should prevent secondary pollution'. Professional organizations such as the Green Packaging Professional Committee of the China Environmental Science Society issued tips to businesses and consumers:' Non-woven bags are also plastic products, which have been used in large quantities for a long time and may become another huge white pollution source after plastic bags. ' According to reports, the raw material composition of the non-woven fabric industry is roughly as follows: 63% polypropylene, 23% polyester, 8% viscose, 2% acrylic fiber, 1. 5% is polyamide and the rest is other fibers. Since the reuse rate of non-woven bags is much higher than that of plastic bags, it is very environmentally friendly from this point of view. However, the main component of non-woven fabrics is polypropylene, and polypropylene is an petrochemical product, which is difficult to degrade at normal temperature or indoor environment, it takes about half a year to degrade in an outdoor environment. In the opinion of some experts,' The non-woven fabric itself is also a chemical product and is not the best substitute'. In addition, non-woven fabrics consume a lot of oil resources in the production process. From this point of view, non-woven shopping bags are not really environmentally friendly bags. At the same time, the plastic restriction order also prompted some businesses, especially shopping malls, to use paper bags in large quantities. In the eyes of environmental protection people, although paper bags can degrade in the natural environment, the energy resource consumption and environmental pollution caused in the paper making process may be more serious than plastic shopping bags. The relevant person in charge of the China Engineering Plastics Industry Association believes that whether it is paper bags, degradable bags, or other so-called'Green','Environmental protection' Packaging products have a certain impact on the environment, but they are relatively small. The real cause of white pollution in plastic bags is that excessive use and recycling are not in place. At present, China consumes up to more than 3 billion plastic bags every day. If only one plastic bag is used per person per day and reused, 2 billion plastic bags can be produced less every day. According to the standard, plastic shopping bags are divided into three types, namely ordinary plastic shopping bags, degradable plastic shopping bags and starch-based plastic shopping bags. According to reports, only degradable plastic bags are environmentally friendly bags, which are divided into light degradation and biodegradable. Experts pointed out that due to technical limitations, the so-called'Environmental protection bag', Mostly non-degradable. Therefore, in a sense, if the cost of degradable plastic bags is reduced to a level acceptable to ordinary people, then consumers can continue to enjoy convenience and practicality, make the white pollution really effectively resolved. Moreover, the purpose of plastic restriction is to advocate consumers to carry cloth bags and carry vegetable baskets again, thus reducing white pollution and achieving the goal of environmental protection. Therefore, while seeking other natural and biological alternative products, experts believe that it may be more important to change the public's consumption concept.
