Where did the paper boxes, tape and other stuff go after the Singles’ Day?

According to Cainiao Network Technology Co., Ltd, Tmall itself had 1.3 billion orders on Singles’ Day. From 5.7 billion orders in 2012 to over 50 billion orders in 2018, the number of express orders in China has grown rapidly in recent years.

Industry insiders predicted that the number of express orders will exceed 60 billion in 2019. Following the rapid growth of express orders is the explosive increase of express packaging waste.

Express packaging is mainly paper boxes and plastic bags. According to a report about the generation characteristics and management status of express packaging waste in China released by organizations such as the All-China Environmental Protection Federation, through practitioners' estimates and sample weight investigations, less than 5 percent of the packaging waste is reused, and most of them are recycled, accounting for about 80 percent.

But from an environmental point of view, the industry insiders are advised to reuse rather than recycle. If the used express packaging products are recycled, the disposal chain of the paper box will be longer, and the pulp inside them will bring about a lot of carbon emissions in the process of reproduction.

Express plastic packaging waste, at present, contains mainly plastic film, stuffing and transparent tape. These plastic packaging objects are low in value, and difficult to recycle. Most of them are regarded as domestic waste to be burned or disposed of in landfills. Nevertheless, both consumers and sellers of various e-commerce platforms are prone to excessive packaging.
