The Green Story - China

  1. 1. The State of Green in China Aug 5.2011 By: Felix Xie
  2. 2. What are the peoples’ attitudes towards the environment in China? Most of Chinese pay much close attention to the environment. With the development of industry and manufacturing. People are getting know more and more about the environmental pollution. In city, They are concerned about what they could get in their daiy life. The vehicle exhaust. The water & the air pollution. The green less and less. In country, they are more concerned about the nature and the earth The desertification. The sandstorm. The red tide and so on
  3. 3. What do they think about it? The Chinese know the environment pollution only two point: Severe No Delay
  4. 4. Are they doing anything to fix it? What they could do is very limited. They could only supervise and urge themselves to save water, to reduce driving, not to littering. Some of them leave the hope to their children. They try to educate their child how to be a gentlemen. But in some country very poor. Even the father is spitting, The power of education is too weak to reach the heart of every children. We have already got some pertinent lows to help to spread the environmental protection. Fortunately, if we ignore the inconvenient brought by the law enforcement, we do have got a lot of progress. But if we could do it better, it’s still a challenge to us. Education Statute
  5. 5. What are China government doing? Chinese Government has took a lot of measure to recover the green in north,like protective forest in north China. In order to reduce the vehicle exhaust in city. Beijing, Shanghai have raised different regulation to control the vehicle. Like Beijing is to ban vehicles with even and odd-numbered license plates on alternate days. And in Shanghai, the government is to raise the price of license plates to allay public want to buy a new car. Besides that, the government organizes teenagers and students to join the planting work in some specific festival. In every school or university, you could find a information board easily in toilet to ask you save water and drop in trash.
  6. 6. What are China NGOs doing? Actually, the development of China NGOs are not very well. In my research, only one interviewee know about NGO. But she still hasn’t a correct idea about how NGO works. It’s very difficult for China NGO to raise funds. People can’t trust in NGO. The learning lack about the NGO is one of the reasons. And another reason is NGO can’t represent the government. The fact means that , in China, private charity is still in primary stage.
  7. 7. What are China Brand doing? Ice Dew is one of the pure water brand of Coca Cola. In China, Ice Dew renew its bottle package. The bottle start to use a new kind of material. The weight of every single bottle reduce to 10.6k from 16k. And after you drink the water, you can wring the bottle like you wring a towel. After you wring it, you could save a large space for the recycle work.
  8. 8. What are China Brand doing? The Nippon Paint use a new technology ” formaldehyde decomposition”. With the technology, it could clear the smell in your room. And decompose the formaldehyde in the air. Keep the air clearly.
