The National Day holiday is the peak of the people's banquet. Liu Yijun, a 37-year-old rural mobile chef, "hurried around" organized more than 150 tables. "No use of disposable plastic tableware! Every day I carry around 400 sets of new tableware I bought." Liu Yijun said.

From May 1 this year, Gangkou Township, Chongyang County, where Liu Yijun is located, has banned the use of disposable plastic products, such as plastic tableware and plastic bags. "I thought I was going to fight a tough battle, but I didn't expect that the ban on plastics was much smoother than expected." On October 7, Zhang Zhaohui, Secretary of the Port Township Party Committee, told the Hubei Daily All-Media reporter that during the 11th holiday, the township increased. Inspection of the use of disposable plastic products, found no illegal use cases. He lamented: "People's awareness of green environmental protection is stronger than before, and the 'forbidden plastic' is the right time." Origin:

A place of beautiful mountains and rivers, surrounded by plastic garbage

The idea of "forbidden plastic" turned into Zhang Zhaohui's mind for 3 years.

In 2016, Zhang Zhaohui was transferred to Ganggang Township, where red, green, green plastic garbage and disposable tableware piled up into the mountains were along the road. Visiting the villagers, he found that some people use plastic tableware for all three meals a day. After a heavy rain, the river receded, and there were plastic bags hanging from the trees beside the river. "The place where mountains and rivers are beautiful is actually surrounded by plastic garbage." Zhang Zhaohui was not in the mood: "Plastic tableware is not good for the body when it is exposed to high temperatures. Plastic garbage is buried in the ground, and it is difficult to degrade for hundreds of years, and it does no harm!"

He wanted to "ban the plastic" in the whole township, considering that it involves thousands of households. To change the old habits of many years, he must invest a lot of manpower and material resources. At that time, Zhang Chaohui's mind had been arduous to tackle the difficult task of poverty alleviation.


Ready for a tough battle, but progress is smooth

In April this year, Xianning City started the "five-line and five-governance" work, namely, along the railway, along the highway, along the shoreline of water bodies, along the important nodes, and along the village, to deal with dirty, chaotic, poor, pollution, and root causes. "The county has lifted poverty and removed its hat. It coincides with the opportunity of 'five-line and five-governance', and the issue of 'forbidden plastics' should be put on the agenda." Zhang Zhaohui put forward his ideas at the township cadres conference.

The village party secretary responded positively. Wang Zheng, a member of the Party branch of Xiaodonggang Village, said: "In the past few months, several relatives have died of illness. For everyone's health, banning disposable plastic tableware should be a conscious action, not a task."

On April 6, the port township launched publicity to distribute the hazards of plastic products to supermarkets, early stalls, restaurants, schools and other places by way of notification letters. The town also convened a team of mobile chefs for weddings and weddings, and given 200 to 1,000 yuan in subsidies to purchase tableware, depending on the scale of operation.

Even after repeated propaganda and mobilization, the township party committee team still has no bottom of mind, predicting that the "prohibition of plastic" will definitely encounter obstacles.

At the end of April, the township party committee divided the whole township into three "war zones", and each "war zone" arranged 7 to 8 staff members. Everyone is full of energy and is preparing to devote great efforts to the battle of "forbidden plastic".

On April 30, the "combat" started. The three "battlefields" acted simultaneously and went to supermarkets, restaurants, schools, and some farmers' homes. "Many of the disposable plastic products sold in townships and villages are 'three no' products. We are going to ask the merchants to stop selling and persuade them to hand in," said Zhang Zhaohui. At noon, everyone met in the village, and put away the disposable plastic tableware, plastic bags, etc., and piled up half the house. After chatting, everyone thought it was quite "easy". Many merchants took the initiative to turn in disposable plastic products that were not sold out.


Waste reduction in township by at least 40%

At about 10 am on September 18, the reporter saw in the port township market that some stall owners were washing dishes earlier, while others were disinfecting dishes and chopsticks, and the entrance of each store was clean. "In the past, white garbage was piled up into mountains, and sanitation workers were busy jumping." Wang Zhixiang, the person in charge of the township cleaning company, said that three or four tons of garbage a day was reduced by at least 40%.

Dai Ruzhen, owner of Jiajiale Supermarket on Gangkou Avenue, said: "I didn't want to sell disposable plastic tableware for a long time, occupying a small area, making a small profit, and making the doorway full of plastic garbage. In the past, everyone was selling and customers needed it. Now they ca n’t "It ’s good!" "Using tableware is healthy and economical." Shen Tao, the owner of Fumanlou Restaurant, also applauded the "forbidden plastic". The restaurant uses about 120,000 sets of disposable tableware each year and costs about 8,000 yuan. Buying disinfection cabinets and tableware now costs more than 4,000 yuan and can be used for several years.

A Jiangxi truck convoy passes through Chongyang Ganggang Township all year round and stays for dinner at Meijun Restaurant in the market town. Knowing that the port township was "banned from plastic", these drivers began to bring their own chopsticks. "'Forbidden Plastic' has no effect on business. Changing habits and good health, everyone is willing." Pang Meifeng, owner of Meijun Restaurant, said.

look forward to:

The countryside is "banned from plastic", when will the city move?

The "ban on plastics" in Gangkou Township spread quickly to the Quartet.

Some residential property groups in the county town had a lively discussion: "The countryside is 'banned from plastic', when will the county town act?" "It is necessary to 'ban plastic'! Which one buys vegetables, not using several plastic bags, ends up becoming garbage. "

A friend in Wuhan contacted Zhang Zhaohui to inquire whether the "forbidden plastic" was true and understood the process. A friend in Qingdao who hasn't been in contact for a long time also called Zhang Zhaohui: "I know the ecological damage caused by the dumping of plastic garbage into the sea.

Looking back on the smooth process of "forbidden plastic", Zhang Zhaohui believes that as long as it conforms to the people's mind, there must be strong positive energy. "Everyone knows the dangers of disposable plastic products. As long as you make up your mind, this is not as difficult as you think."

Academician Zhang Lina of Wuhan University-"Plastic Prohibition" in Port Township is worth promoting

On September 9th, the Central Committee of Comprehensive and Deepening Reform held its tenth meeting and reviewed and approved the "Opinions on Further Strengthening the Control of Plastic Pollution." The meeting pointed out that to actively respond to plastic pollution, we must firmly establish a new development concept and orderly ban and restrict the production, sales and use of some plastic products.

Zhang Lina, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a professor at Wuhan University, has long been engaged in research on "green chemistry". She said that the plastics produced by petroleum-based polymers are shockingly serious because they are not biodegradable. It takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to degrade. More and more mammals, reptiles and birds around the world are injured or killed by eating plastic products or being entangled by them. The impact of waste plastics on soil quality, river bed damage, and channel blockages is also increasing. At present, plastic waste has entered the ocean in large quantities from land, and more than 8 million tons of waste plastic are dumped into the sea every year. At the current rate of pollution, the volume of plastic in the ocean will exceed that of fish by 2050, posing a huge threat to human survival.

In recent years, Britain, South Korea, Australia and other developed countries are considering banning disposable plastics. In March this year, Hainan Province issued a strict "plastic ban" plan, which will completely ban the production, sale and use of disposable non-degradable plastic products by industry and category.

Hubei has the longest coastline of the Yangtze River and has a heavy responsibility for environmental protection. Academician Zhang Lina believes that the "ban on plastic" in Gangkou Township, Chongyang County is conducive to the protection of the Yangtze River and should be promoted in a wider area.
