Reduce-Plastic-Pollution-with-the-6R-Principle-Start-with-Eco-Bag.jpg


Plastic pollution is a major problem for the world. They are made from non-renewable resources. It takes at least 200 years for a plastic bag to degrade. And they usually end up in landfills, oceans, etc., the impact on our ecosystem is seriously detrimental. In response to this problem, the UN General Assembly declares March 30 as the International Day of Zero Waste, calling on countries and businesses around the world to join the battle to defend the planet and reduce plastic pollution.

As a packaging manufacturer, ABZ Packaging uses eco bags to reduce plastic pollution and actively promotes sustainable development strategies. This article will introduce how to use the 6R principles to reduce plastic pollution, and how to start with reusable eco bags to promote sustainable development strategies to protect our ecosystem and human health.
 

What is the 6R principle?

1.Refuse
Refuse single-use plastic bags. Grocery stores and shopping centres around the world offer single-use plastic bags for consumer use. Bring your own eco bags and save money on plastic bags in the long run.

2.Reduce 
Reduce the amount of waste we produce. We can do this by using eco bags instead of single-use plastic bags. Eco bags are reusable, durable, and made from sustainable materials such as cotton or recycled plastic.

3.Reuse
Reuse items as much as possible. This includes using eco bags for grocery shopping, carrying items to work or school, or even using them as gift bags.

4.Repurpose
Repurpose items that can no longer be used for their original purpose, Yataro Matsuura, a famous Japanese master of life aesthetics, once said that only things that accompany you to spend time and tarnish your taste truly belong to you. Before throwing an item away, think about whether you can repair it or find a better place for it.

5.Recycle
Recycle as much as possible. This includes recycling plastic bags and other plastic items that cannot be reused or repurposed.

6.Rot
Compost organic waste. This includes food scraps, yard waste, and other organic matter that can be turned into compost and used to fertilise plants and gardens.
 

Conclusion

Adopting the 6R principle is one of the most effective ways to reduce plastic pollution. Using recyclable eco bags instead of plastic bags is a very important step in this process. Although it is only one method, it can effectively reduce the generation of plastic waste. As a company, we have the responsibility to encourage our customers to use eco bags and promote the concept of sustainable development. Everyone has a responsibility in this process, and only by working together can we protect the health of the planet.
