Finns use 180 kg of various packaging products every year, of which more than 50% can be recycled. The total amount of packaging products used in Finland every year is 2.2 million tons of paper and paper products, 50% of which are transportation packaging cardboard; 310000 tons of plastic packaging, of which 90000 tons are not recyclable; 30000 tons of metal products, most of which are beverage packaging; 460000 tons of glass products, of which about 400000 tons are recycled glass packaging products. Finland joined the European Union in 1995. According to the regulations of the European Union, all EU countries should use similar packaging as much as possible and use similar materials that reduce pollution as much as possible. It is required that the recycling rate of packaging products should reach about 50-65% by 2001. Finland is very heavy, with a year-on-year increase of 14.6%; The net profit attributable to the parent company is 2.23 billion yuan. Depending on environmental protection, all enterprises producing packaging products are obliged to recycle the used packaging. The general method is that several large enterprises producing packaging jointly form a subsidiary responsible for recycling the used packaging to do this work
