Shopping bag was switched to paid service as garbage reduction plan of plastic on July 1. However, by stay home accompanied with prevention of new coronavirus infection spread, takeout increased, and plastic garbage increased rapidly. In addition, disposable mask, nonwoven fabric mask made of plastic is discarded inadequately. Plastic garbage flows through the ocean through river, but it is reduced and floats in the atmosphere.
