On Excessive Packaging
Nowadays many commodities are packaged excessively. It is very common that a very small item is wrapped in a very big and luxury box. Take the moon cake as an example. Every Mid-Autumn Day, we can see various delicate packaging boxes in which there are only a few small moon cakes. Obviously, excessive packaging has become very popular in our daily life.
Then what are responsible for this phenomenon? Firstly, many manufactures package the goods as luxuriously and beautifully as possible to raise the prices of some common goods. Secondly, many customers think that delicately packaged goods are superior to those with plain packaging, which further boosts excessive packaging.
From my point of view, delicate packaging, to some extent, means good quality, but excessive packaging is not only wasteful but also unfriendly to the environment. Therefore, on the one hand, I suggest the laws on packaging be perfected to restrict excessive packaging. On the other hand, as responsible customers, we should first consider the quality, not the packaging. This, I believe, can combat the further expansion of excessive packaging.
