A new plat­form called Taofeibao was re­cently set up in Shang­hai to pro­mote sus­tain­abil­ity by help­ing peo­ple get rid of their un­wanted goods in an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly man­ner. Users of the plat­form can make ap­point­ments with re­cy­cling per­son­nel who of­fer door-to-door col­lec­tion ser­vices. Wu Jie, the founder of Taofeibao, said that the plat­form was cre­ated as a re­sponse to the grow­ing amounts of used pack­ag­ing, old elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ances and other goods in this era when on­line shop­ping has be­come mas­sively pop­u­lar.

Shang­hai In­ter­na­tional Marathon is re­garded as the most pop­u­lar among all run­ning ac­tiv­i­ties in 2016, ac­cord­ing to the an­nual re­port of Iran­shao.com, a sports com­mu­nity web­site. A to­tal of 1,392 run­ning com­pe­ti­tions were held in China in 2016, in­clud­ing do­mes­tic cross-coun­try races and marathons, with the lat­ter ac­count­ing for al­most one third of them. The re­port also found that Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber were the months where these events took place most fre­quently in the Yangtze River Delta re­gion. In ad­di­tion, the re­port found that the en­try fees of do­mes­tic marathons are lower com­pared to the global stan­dard but higher than pre­vi­ous years. CHINA DAILY
