Waste not, want not ­


Employees of Seongdong District Office inspect gift sets at a large discount store yesterday to find out whether there is any excessive packaging. The Ministry of Environment and local governments are jointly conducting the inspection on gift sets for the Lunar New Year until Feb. 8. Should the amount of packaging and the space ratio in the package exceed certain standards, the manufacturer or importer of the product must pay a 3 million won ($2,820) fine according to the relevant laws and regulations.
