#Trashtag is a hot trend that is sweeping the world. #Trashtag participants will clean up the environment, take pictures before and after to compare and then post on the internet to ask everyone to act. This challenge spread from Europe to Asia, but suddenly came to Japan and lost consciousness. Because here, public places or streets are always in a clean, spotless state.
#Trashtag challenge sweeps the world
But going to Japan is quiet and diving
Not only is scarcity of garbage, but Japan also has very few public trash. So how did they use it to preserve the environment 24/24? This must be a common question for many foreign tourists.
In the country of cherry blossoms, there are no sanitation workers or trash cans on ordinary streets, except for crowded roads. But Japanese people are not so trashy. They often take their garbage bags home or go to the designated area, and strictly follow strict regulations on waste sorting. Such a sense of environmental protection has been refined by them from an early age.
Public trash can not be found
But in Japan almost everywhere is clean
Japanese children all understand that littering is indecent. Besides, they are also required to learn the rules of garbage classification. Parents will be the instructors and role models for their children, building healthy habits from one generation to the next. This may explain why Japanese streets are always clean.
Not only propagandizing and educating about the sense of garbage disposal, environmental protection, Japanese law also favorably offers various penalties for those who like to litter. Specifically, people who litter indiscriminately will be sentenced to 5 years or less, and will be fined 10 million yen (2.2 billion VND). If the violator is the legal representative of a business or organization, the fine will increase to 300 million yen (64 billion). Surely no one will foolishly violate to receive a "super big" fine like this.
In Japan, if you want to litter indiscriminately, you must be rich first!
Not to mention that if garbage disposal is wrongly prescribed, the violator will be posted a name notice and criticized by the neighborhood team, discriminated by the community or even shunned by the neighbors. Also do not expect someone to cover you, because Japanese law requires citizens to immediately report a violation when discovered.
More than 40 years ago, the official garbage classification law was issued and applied all over Japan. The both long and complicated rules have sparked a wave of indignation from many housewives. But time proved the Japanese government's decision was correct. Now, the environment in Japan not only becomes cleaner, but also an example for many other countries to follow and study.
