breaking the technological monopoly of developed countries such as Europe and Japan. The annual expenditure related to plastics in the US consumer goods industry reaches US $75 billion, especially in the food and beverage industry. However, the willingness and ability of companies to disclose the use of plastics vary greatly, according to a report released today

the report is entitled "the value of Plastics: measurement, management and disclosure of consumer goods industry. Plastics are widely used in all walks of life!

the report found that the disclosure of plastic use by enterprises was few and inconsistent. Less than half of the 100 companies surveyed have one or more data points. There was no significant correlation between the disclosure rate and the use or expenditure of plastics

"disclosure varies widely. Footwear and sports products companies do not have any available quantitative data points, while 88% of durable household goods and 71% of personal care products companies have data points," the report said. "Quantitative data points can be 11. Turn off the machine according to the program requirements after use. It is strictly forbidden to directly cut off the power supply. There are many forms, from the total amount of plastic used every year to the recycling plan."

data show that the toy, sporting goods and durable household goods industry uses the most plastics (based on the amount of plastic used per $1 million of revenue). Soft drinks, personal products and medicine are among the most plastic intensive users, mainly in packaging

the retail, catering and tobacco industries that use plastics most in the supply chain may be due to their supply chain positioning and dependence on agricultural products, the report said
