[Office Supply Store] Old paper-wrapped books are replaced—the popularity of plastic book covers triggers a 'plastic limit' controversy
Many textbooks have their own plastic packaging, and then using plastic book covers to wrap the books will inevitably lead to a waste of resources. The new book has just been delivered to the students, and the transparent book cover has also become popular. Ms. Wang, the parent of the primary one freshman, originally planned to spend an afternoon wrapping books for her son, but when she went to the stationery store, she found that the form of wrapping books has now been simplified: just buy a transparent plastic book cover and put it on the book cover.

The new book has just been delivered to the students, and the transparent book cover has also become popular. Ms. Wang, the parent of the primary one freshman, originally planned to spend an afternoon wrapping books for her son, but when she went to the stationery store, she found that the form of wrapping books has now been simplified: just buy a transparent plastic book cover and put it on the book cover. That's it. According to the owner of the stationery store, the office supplies store says that when a parent comes to buy it, there are more than 30 copies. After chatting with the parents around, she found that this kind of plastic book cover is almost the mainstream of book packaging, and few people use old calendar paper to wrap books. Ms. Wang is very confused. The supermarket has already restricted plastics. Why is this kind of plastic-wrapped book paper popular? The reporter learned during the interview that in reality, the school's book-packing requirements are often to cultivate students' awareness of cherishing property. However, many textbooks are in plastic packaging, and the use of plastic bookcases in office supply stores will inevitably lead to a waste of resources. ■Parent attitude I have doubts, but most choose to compromise. When school starts, I will spend at least 2 hours to pack books for my children. With the advent of the new semester, citizen Mr. Zhu must also complete this task. This year, his son, who is only in third grade, has put forward strict requirements on the book paper: this semester’s book paper must be made of plastic, white and transparent, and the edges should not be scratched. In fact, several of Mr. Zhu’s colleagues have encountered such problems. Although there are all kinds of plastic book paper on the market, because these products do not have uniform specifications, large or small, and the degree of transparency is also different, if the wrong choice is made, the teacher may express dissatisfaction. I thought it was the child's own thoughts to pack books, but after asking, I realized that it was the teacher's request, and if the pack is not good, the teacher may call it 'unqualified'. A parent of a primary school student, Ms. Chen, said that not to mention the uneven quality of plastic-wrapped book paper, as the plastic itself is not good for environmental protection, this behavior should not be promoted. However, the troubles are only one-sided. In order to create the best learning environment for their children as much as possible, almost every parent will choose to compromise on this issue. As a result, plastic-wrapped books and papers on the market will usher in every year before and after school starts. Hot sale period. Yesterday afternoon, the reporter saw on the Internet that various styles of book-wrapping paper appeared in the hot-selling product column of the online store, with a bag of 10 sheets and a unit price of 12 yuan. In many parent-child forums, the group buying of plastic-wrapped book paper has also attracted strong posts, and most parents hope to buy cheap and good-quality babies. ■School theory cultivating children's awareness of cherishing books In fact, the purpose of advocating students to pack books is mainly to cultivate children's love and protection of books, and the beauty and neatness are second. Regarding the phenomenon of book packaging, a teacher from a school in Zhabei in this city told reporters that it is a fact that textbooks are used for a long time and office supplies stores are easily damaged. Wear and tear, the need to pack books and paper is entirely to help children develop a good sense of cherishing property. It is understood that many schools in this city currently have two main methods for book packaging. One is to stipulate that students must use a uniform style, color, and transparent plastic material; the other only requires that the schoolbag Well, there is no hard and fast rule on whether the book wrapping paper is plastic or paper. This has also triggered debates among different schools on whether plastic-wrapped books and paper are environmentally friendly. If only from the material point of view, plastic bag paper is indeed not environmentally friendly, but office supply stores cannot find a better substitute at present. Teacher Shi believes that, compared to plastic, using calendar paper to wrap books is environmentally friendly, but it is difficult to identify after wrapping and is easily damaged, so it is not as durable as the former. Teacher Zhu from a school in Pudong believes that since the purpose of book packaging is not to be beautiful, but to protect the books and cultivate students' awareness, it does not matter what materials are used to wrap the books. Since June 1st last year, office supply stores in my country began to implement plastic restrictions. However, this policy is mainly aimed at supermarkets, shopping malls, bazaars and other retail places where plastic shopping bags are provided free of charge, and there is no restriction on the large-scale promotion of plastic book paper in schools. Although plastic book covers can be recycled, they can hardly last a school year for their service life. Office supply stores have to replace a new batch of book papers every first grade, which is too wasteful. A student's parent said.
