Study of Treating Marine Pollution Based on “3-Cent–Measure”
To show that taking measures can bring benefits in marine pollution, first of all, we compared the added weight of polystyrene containers debris between taking and not taking the “3-Cent –measure”. Besides, we calculated the cost for taking this measure. On the bases of these, we found the benefits of taking measures are far greater than their costs. Finally, we suggest that the government take long-term interests into account, and take measures to treat marine pollution.
