China amends law to combat excessive packaging

March 05/2012

(packagingnews) -- An official document, posted on the Chinese Central Governments website, said Chinas legislature approved the amended version of the Law on the Promotion of Clean Production.

The Amendment to the Law on the Promotion of Clean Production, which will take effect in July, stipulates that companies should package their products in a manner that well fits the contents quality, size and cost and makes less packaging waste.

According to the amended law, during the design process of products and packages, companies "should take into account what influence they will exert upon human health and environment and give preferred consideration to plans that use packaging in a non-poisonous, harmless, degradable and recyclable way".

China has seen public outcries over excessive packaging, which not only causes unnecessary waste of resources and environmental pollution but also pushes product prices up, said Wang Guangtao, a legislator.

According to Guangtao, "excessive packaging fosters extravagance and corruption".
