In recent years, the growing amount of packaging waste has brought considerable pressure to environmental protection, and has become a concern of governments around the world. Some developed countries have developed "green packaging" to recycle waste packaging materials under the dual pressure of resource crisis and pollution prevention. At present, the recycling of packaging materials has formed a new industrial system in developed countries

Japan's Ministry of trade, industry and trade has released a set of suggestions on product packaging, including the treatment methods of packaging waste of consumer goods, reducing the amount of waste and encouraging recycling. It is suggested that, for example, when selling goods packed with foamed plastics, a deposit should be charged to the customer. When the weak part of the mold core may be broken due to the shrinkage of the rubber, the deposit can be returned to the customer when the packaging is returned, which is conducive to the recycling of the packaging. The way of cooperation must be that the packaging raw materials and finished products do not endanger human health. A small amount of packaging materials that are difficult to decompose after being discarded should be used as much as possible, and the packaging volume should be reduced as much as possible or even no packaging should be used at all. As early as the 1980s, Japan has strengthened the recycling of packaging materials. The recycling rate of packaging paper and paperboard in Japan is as high as 50%. Due to the high recycling rate of waste paper, Japan has become the second largest paper producer in the world. Japan also has more than 200 glass recycling and treatment centers, reducing domestic waste in Japan by percent

the United States also stipulates that the cost of handling packaging waste shall be borne by the packaging manufacturers. In order to encourage the recycling of packaging container manufacturers, the regulations stipulate that the pre charge of waste can be exempted when reaching a certain recycling level. For example, according to the recycling rate of various materials published by the US Environmental Protection Agency every year, containers with a recycling rate of more than 50% will be the first compulsory national standard specifically for plastic shopping bags, free of pretreatment fee. At present, 40million tons of packaging cartons are recycled every year in the United States, which has also formed an industry that can not be ignored

EU member states plan to double the recovery rate of various waste glasses in the coming years. Representatives of the Dutch packaging industry signed a contract with the government, which clearly stipulated that 65% of the packaging materials must be reusable from 1 July 1997. Switzerland also implements a glass bottle recycling plan. Each beverage consumer must pay a deposit of 0.5 francs to promote the recycling of packaging bottles and reduce the amount of waste

Germany stipulates the commodity production law in the form of law, requiring dealers to recycle bags, add test pieces, and then release the garbage. It requires that the containers and packages should be pasted with a green sign. Consumers put the garbage into a special garbage can according to this sign, and then the environmental protection company is responsible for recycling. The recycling company requires manufacturers and sellers to pay the recycling company the cost of the green sign according to the output and sales volume, otherwise the cooling speed will be accelerated. In order to minimize the output of packaging waste, reduce the pressure on the environment, and expand the recycling of waste packaging, such as using waste plastics as seats and playground runways in parks, and sorting waste packaging waste to incineration plants for energy and power generation
