With the fast development of economy, various products are full of our lives. However, taking a look around, no one will not notice that most goods are decorated with many beautiful, attractive but excessive packaging. This phenomenon should arouse people’s wide concerns.
The phenomenon exists for a number of factors. For one thing, the majority of people are tending to present the gifts which have excessive packaging to their bosses, friends or relatives in festivals. Most of them pay more attention to the appearance than the gift itself. For another, in view of people’s vanity, more and more merchants are inclining to put more emphasis on the appearance than quality to adapt to consumers’ demand. In addition, the merchants can get higher profit by excessively packing. Therefore, the merchants take delight in excessive packaging.
Nevertheless, excessive packaging has brought some bad effects in our life. On the one hand, consumers have to pay for the extra cost when they buy commodities. And it will increase the burden of consumers. On the other hand, it will disturb the market’s order if all merchants focus on the appearance than the quality of goods. What’s worse, excessive packaging causes the waste of resources and serious environment pollution.
Thus, some effective actions should be taken to stop excessive packaging as soon as possible so that we can keep the stable development of market and protect our earth better.
