Moon cakes are over-packaged

CHINA WATCH It’s Mid-Autumn day, a Chinese traditional festival that celebrates the harvest and family gathering.

And it is our Chinese tradition to eat moon cakes, but the over-packaging of the moon cakes seems to bring a lot of waste. After Mid-Autumn Day, people  throw away tons of moon cake boxes.

Over-packaging moon cakes has raised controversy this year. A Chinese article on the Xinmin Newspaper calls for simpler or even no packaging.

Greenbang once received a box of moon cakes with four layers of packaging – a paper box outside, then a metal box, then silk, then plastic, and finally the moon cake appeared.

It looks like most of the money spent on moon cakes is for packaging.

    Leaky pipes is a painful subject for me. I’ve often been kept awake at night because of my leaky pipes. Do you think Thames Water can come around and fix them? How about next Wednesday? I’m free all afternoon.
