How can we make Singles Day greener?
Editor's note: The Singles Day, the world's biggest online shopping day, came to an end. Nearly 3 billion packages were handled from Nov 11 to 16 during which an average of 490 million packages were delivered every day, according to the State Post Bureau. As more people embrace online shopping, the amount of waste generated as a result has become a matter of concern. How should we address the massive packaging waste problem? Readers share their opinions.
Packaging of goods must improve! Regulations can be put in place but self-awareness would be better. Recycled material should be used as much as possible. Citizens can recycle the packaging material. New ways to recycle plastic wrappings would be helpful.
