Today if you throw out a plastic cup in Shanghai, chances are it will end up in a landfill. We certainly don’t want that ticking bomb next to our precious city, taking up plots of land and releasing toxic gases and liquids into the environment.

今天,如果你在上海扔掉一个塑料杯,它最终的命运将是被扔进垃圾填埋场。我们当然不希望在家门口放一颗定时炸弹,占据大片土地,向环境释放有毒气体和液体。

Let’s face it, most of us aren’t great at refusing and reducing. The ultimate solution to climate change will have to be more compatible with how most people already live their life. What about disposable cups and plates made from sustainable materials? I wonder.

让我们面对现实吧,我们大多数人都不擅长拒绝强迫性购物和减少垃圾排放。解决全球变暖的最终方案必须与大多数人已有的生活方式更加兼容。用环保材料制成的一次性杯子和盘子怎么样?我想研究一下。
