[China Packaging News] according to the Kyodo news agency of Japan, the national food safety standards for 6 kinds of products will hold a high-level conference "United Nations Ocean Conference" at the United Nations headquarters in New York in the middle of this month. In order to prevent the increasingly serious marine pollution caused by plastic waste, the draft declaration requires all countries to completely stop using plastic bags and disposable plastics. At the meeting, ministers of various countries will discuss the sustainable use of oceans and resources protection

it is reported that the draft declaration calls on all countries to popularize reusable products and develop substitutes made of degradable plastics that are easily decomposed in the environment. In addition, countries are called upon to avoid using plastic particles that may have an impact on the ecosystem in products such as toothpaste or facial cleanser. The draft will show the international community's cooperation in combating marine plastic pollution

it is reported that this meeting is one of the measures to achieve the sustainable development goals (sdgs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015. It is planned to discuss and adopt a declaration on marine pollution countermeasures, sustainable fisheries, ecosystem protection, etc. from June 5 to 9, but the text may change in the future

the draft declaration is entitled "our oceans and call for future action", which aims to achieve the ocean related goals in sdgs. It also involves strengthening the response to the rise of sea water temperature and atmospheric oxidation caused by global warming. However, some automobile factories in Europe believe that they can use a variety of superior properties to make up for the ocean acidification caused by the rise of carbon concentration, and urge countries to introduce illegal fishery countermeasures

with regard to plastic waste, the draft strives to achieve the goal of completely stopping the use of plastic bags, disposable products and plastic particulate products, and calls on all countries to "formulate and implement long-term strategies to reduce the use of plastic". It is also required to promote "reduction, reuse and recycling" and reduce the discharge of plastic waste on land

the draft declaration states that in order to reduce the negative impact of ocean acidification and global warming on the marine ecosystem, "relevant commitments and obligations will be effectively fulfilled", so as to urge all countries to abide by the Paris agreement that entered into force last year
