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
