CPPCC Member on Environmental Friendly Takeaway Food
Wang Honghong, a CPPCC member and also deputy mayor of Huaian City, was interviewed by the Morning News program at China Central Television about the added stress to environmental protection from the waste created by takeaway food.
Wang said measures need to be taken to reduce the garbage from takeaway food, for example allowing customers to choose whether they want the one-off chopsticks when placing an order.
About recycling and reuse of food packaging, Wang believes it needs legislation at the national level to promote recycling while package producers as well as company users also need to take responsibility.
