Industry experts said that the use time of plastic straws was only a few minutes, but the degradation time could be as long as 500 years, making it difficult to recover and use
the replacement cost and use experience of paper straws are difficult problems to be solved.
from September 1 this year, the newly revised law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste will be implemented.
