Demonstration Project of Plastic Pollution Prevention and Control in Guangdong Province
This project intends to reduce plastic pollution by releasing recommended inventory of advanced environmentally friendly plastic alternative technologies and products, evaluating circular economy demonstration units in the field of plastic substitution and promoting the application of circular meal box model in Guangdong universities

Problems
1. Guangdong government has enacted the inventory of banned and restrained production, sale and use of plastic products. However, there is no inventory of alternative products.
2. Lacking of environmental friendly alternative products for market promotion in Guangdong.
3. There is a gap between supply and demand of alternative products of plastic.
4. Public's awareness of green consumption is weak.

Activities:
1. Releasing recommended inventory of advanced environmentally friendly plastic alternative technologies and products,
2. Evaluating circular economy demonstration units in the field of plastic substitution

Project Characteristics and Results
Policy Impact
A policy advocacy report concerning replacing traditional plastic products with new material and enhacing public awareness will be presented to the local government.
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
