Green packaging logo and national regulations

in 1975, Li Shousheng met with representatives of Bayer materials technology China. The world's first "green" logo for green packaging (a circular pattern composed of green arrows and white arrows) - "green dot" came out in Germany. The double color arrow of "green dot" indicates that the product or package is green and can be recycled, which meets the requirements of ecological balance and environmental protection

in 1977, the German government launched the "Blue Angel" green environmental protection logo to award products with green environmental protection characteristics (including packaging). Since then, many countries have also begun to use environmental labels for product packaging. For example, Canada's "maple leaf logo", Japan's "love the earth", the United States's "natural friendship", the European Community's "flower of Europe", Denmark. "White swan" from Finland, Sweden, Norway and other Nordic countries, "green logo" from Singapore, "environmental choice" of New Zealand concrete pressure testing machine, a frequently used testing instrument, and "ecological product" from Portugal

any product marked with "green label" means that the product meets the requirements of environmental protection from production to use until final consumption and recycling. Developed countries generally stipulate that a commodity can enter the market of the country only after obtaining the "green mark" of the country, otherwise it is forbidden to enter the country

in 1981, the Danish government first introduced the recycling method of packaging containers in view of the adverse effects caused by the increase in empty bottles of beverage containers). Because the implementation of this law has affected the agreement on the free flow of goods within the European Community and the interests of Member States, it triggered a "Danish bottle" lawsuit

In 1988, the European Court of Justice ruled that Denmark won. In order to alleviate the dispute, the European community held the Dublin conference in June 1990, put forward the idea of "fully protecting the environment" and formulated the waste transportation law, which stipulates that packaging waste cannot be transported to other countries. As long as materials are put in, all countries should bear the burden of waste

Germany actively responded to the call of the European community, passed the German Packaging Act in 1991, and then promulgated and implemented the circular economy and waste management law, which stipulates that commodity producers and distributors recycle packaging waste, require containers and packages to be labeled with green labels, and the use fee of green labels depends on the difficulty of recycling packaging waste

Austria introduced the "packaging regulation" in 1992, and then published the "packaging target regulation" to supplement it, requiring producers and sellers to accept and recycle transportation packaging, second-hand packaging and sales packaging free of charge, and requiring recycling and recycling of 80% of the recycled packaging resources

France enacted the "packaging regulations" in 1993, requiring that the amount of household waste treated by landfill must be reduced. In 1994, the transportation and packaging regulations were promulgated, which clearly stipulates that the final users of all packaging except household packaging should separate products from packaging and be recycled by companies and retailers

Belgium passed the national ecological law in 1993, and also formulated an ecological tax, which stipulates that paper packaging and reusable packaging can be exempted from tax, and the packaging of other materials must pay tax

in order to promote the development of green packaging, the British government not only formulated the packaging waste Ordinance, but also formed a "producer industry group" composed of 28 companies in the packaging industry and food industry to promote the collection and reuse of packaging waste throughout the country

as a world economic power, the United States has long noticed the other hazards of packaging waste, and all States have formulated relevant policies and regulations. In 1993, the California government specially formulated the "beverage container ransom system", which stipulates that all hard plastic containers must be recycled in accordance with the requirements of reducing the consumption of raw materials by 10% or containing 25% recyclable substances proposed in 1991. The Florida government actively promotes the waste disposal pre charge law (hereinafter referred to as AFD), which allows consumers who choose goods freely to bear the cost of packaging waste disposal, so as to encourage packaging container manufacturers to recycle and support the implementation of the law. AFD law stipulates that waste tax exemption can be applied for as long as it reaches a certain recycling level. For example, according to various data published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (DFP) every year, containers with a recovery rate of more than 50% can be exempted from pre charging, so as to encourage all producers to ensure that at least half of their products can be recycled
