On July 1, Shanghai strictly enforced the mandatory classification of garbage. In this regard, some people expressed trouble, and some people were not optimistic about the intensity of implementation, and even there were reports of conflicts caused by non-compliance with the rules, and they fought. But I think that it can be a good thing to start with this. Slowly, it will always become a habit. It is imperative for the environment in which we live and the earth we live in. Whether it is waste sorting, recycling, or plastic restriction orders, everyone can do their part to contribute to environmental protection. Sometimes it feels like just discarding a plastic bottle and using a plastic bag, but the accumulation is small, and each person has 7.6 billion worldwide, which is very impressive. I believe everyone has seen the photos of marine litter, which is really shocking, and it is even more horrible that marine life inadvertently eats plastic litter and leads to violent violence. Are these tumors that grow wild in the ocean all discarded by accident? And the counterattack of nature, the ultimate victims will be us humans themselves, our descendants. Many environmental protection organizations and enthusiasts are now engaged in marine protection, beach purification campaigns, marine litter removal, popularization of plastic pollution serious knowledge, advocacy of waste recycling, and production of clean energy … In the watchmaking industry, there are also brands engaged in such protection. Comes from charity, especially those watch brands that have historically been related to sailing and launched sailing series or diving series. I have heard some people question that these brands are just ‘shows’, but show shows are better than nothing! It’s better to sit up and talk, shouldn’t we also do something? 01.

Start with me and do my part to protect the planet. I come from Taiwan and always thought that Taiwan’s garbage classification has been done for more than 10 years and should be perfect. So after coming to live in Shanghai, I have been very worried about the garbage classification in Shanghai, and now I have finally waited for the garbage classification. But last week when I returned to Taiwan, I found that the waste classification in Taiwan does not include food waste and toxic waste. In this respect, Shanghai has done better than Taiwan and has done it thoroughly. This article was originally intended to be released on World Environment Day on June 5 and World Ocean Day on June 8.
