At present, various countries are actively adopting packaging materials that are easy to recycle, easy to handle or easy to consume, and advocate simple but not simple new ideas of commodity packaging, which is a popular trend in the world. Although the national standard of "Restricting Excessive Packaging Requirements for Products-Food and Cosmetics" will be implemented soon, some luxuriously packaged foods on the market are still difficult to eliminate. The measures taken by other countries to combat excessive packaging are worthy of reference and reference.

Excessive packaging in South Korea is illegal. Manufacturers who fail to reduce the packaging ratio and number of layers of products in accordance with government regulations will be fined up to 3 million won. South Korea has also adopted three major measures to regulate manufacturers: one is to inspect packaging bottles; the second is to reward labels; and the third is to deal with fines for violations of packaging bottle regulations.



Japan has successively introduced laws and regulations such as the Renewable Resources Utilization Promotion Law, the Lotion Pump Head Recycling Law and the New Packaging Guidelines, which stipulate that the volume of the packaging bottle should be minimized, and the space of the packaging bottle should not exceed 20% of the container volume; the packaging cost should not exceed 15% of the selling price, the packaging should correctly display the value of the product to avoid misleading consumers. At the same time, the "Outline of Appropriate Packaging for Commodity Gift Boxes" stipulates: The principle of the gap between the packaging bottle should not exceed 20% of the entire container; the gap between the product and the product must be below 1cm; the gap between the product and the inner wall of the box must be kept below 5mm; The packaging cost must be less than 15% of the entire product price.

In the United States, it is deceptive packaging as long as there are too many spaces in the packaging, the height difference between the bottle and the content is too large, and the packaging is not technically necessary for no reason.
