A Report on the Use of Plastic Bags in Our Daily Life
1. Our main method is field survey and questionnaire survey. Our supporting method is collecting materials through the internet.
2. At the beginning stage, we collect materials on plastic bags and Ban on Plastic Bags. In the medium-term, we collect data by field survey and questionnaire survey.
3. In the end, we summarize the materials and data, and write an investigation report.
The whole investigation was accomplished on April 11,2009.
Team members got together at eight o’clock in the designated place. The team members who passed by country markets observed the use of plastic bags when buying vegetables. After get-together, team members summarized their observations and found that most seller still offered thin, colored and low-quality plastic bags. However, some buyers used plastic bags from super markets, baskets or cloth bag. Buyers who use baskets are mostly elders.
After get-together, team members walked to Huaxing Super Market. We firstly negotiated with mangers about the negotiation process, and then interviewed with several cashiers. We got to know that, before ban on plastic bags, one checkout generally sold 300 to 400 plastic bags per day. But after the ban, the number reduced sharply, to 120 to 200. After the interview, we separately observed around the checkout for 30 minutes and made a statistics of the use of plastic bags during the period. We also took pictures.
Survey the situation:
During lunch time, we handed out some questionnaires to some customers. After lunch, team members got together walked to waterfront park. We handed out the rest questionnaires to citizens and made data analysis.
Result of Investigation:
1. As far as we knew, citizens clearly knew the harmful effects of plastic bags. The starting point of ban on plastic bags is fine, and most citizens can understand it. However, the execution is not satisfactory. In super markets, the use of plastic bags is reducing, but there are still some customers who don’t care for the money and buy plastic bags. More and more customers don’t use plastic bags when they buy small amount and low volume commodities. Situation is worser in country markets. People seldom do not use plastic bags. Sellers voluntarily offer plastic bags and buyers do not refuse to use them. Thus, Ban on plastic bags is harldy executed here.
2. As a matter of fact, charge on plastic bags can not radically deal with white pollution, but is an effective method to improve environmental protection consciousness.Our country should continue to strengthen the propaganda of ban on plastic bags and make the ban on plastic bags a habit.
3. It is an urgent responsibility to find a substitute, which both can facilitate people’s daily life and is environmental protection, for plastic bags.
