[China Packaging News] the mailboxes of most urban families in China have actually become a dusty decoration in the Internet era. But in American life, the mailbox is always full. The paper products filled with the mailbox can be seen everywhere, and they are very important

in Los Angeles, the landlord gave the house key and a mailbox key. The landlord told me that this key is very important. Don't lose it. He also told me to open the mailbox often. But I didn't care

in China, every family in the community also has a mailbox, but I don't remember how long it takes to open it. Every time I think of opening a mailbox, it must be for some reason that I have to open it. I think not only me, but also the mailbox of most families has become a dusty decoration in the Internet era

after staying for a week, my neighbor told me that the mailbox was full. Go and get it quickly. I'm very surprised. I've only been here for a week and haven't told my friend's address. Why is the mailbox full

The mailbox of the president's election, the mailbox of the telecom company, and even a page full of free advertising materials can't be seen. It's really "only what you can't think of, not what it can't send"

for several weeks in a row, the mailbox is always full. I don't believe that this is the United States in the Internet era. With the strategy of Panasonic, 3-star SDI, LG and other foreign enterprises, I feel that this is a country living on paper products. The following daily life makes me truly feel that paper products can be seen everywhere in American society and are of great importance:

the documents and insurance terms for buying automobile insurance and medical insurance are printed into thick paper manuals and sent to the mailbox

the car ownership transfer agreement, DMV documents and unfortunately encountered driving tickets are also sent to the mailbox in the form of paper products. If they are not checked in time, the ticket will be subject to a sky high overdue fine

the packaging bag of fast food restaurant food, whether it is a single package containing French fries and hamburgers or 1. Check whether the rotation of the mixer is a good meal box before operation, and the large, medium and small beverage cups and coffee cups are also paper

a large number of exquisite paper greeting cards can be seen in supermarkets at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Families with children will also make all kinds of paper greeting cards with their children to give to friends, neighbors and classmates

paper check payment is as important as credit card payment. My landlord said that I can only send a check to refund my rental deposit...

the commonly used QR code discount coupons and electronic group purchase coupons in China have few "figures" in the United States, and most American people still use paper discount coupons. These coupons are regularly sent to each resident, that is, the "junk" paper products I often receive in my mailbox. In fact, they are really not rubbish. The discount and discount ratio they give are so high that I also enjoy the buy one get one free package at Yoshino family with paper coupons

in addition to feeling the ubiquity of paper products in daily life, scholars who study media pay more attention to paper media

when introducing the global newspaper industry in China, it is usually said that "one city and one newspaper is the characteristic of the American newspaper industry". However, when I came here, I learned that this "one city" not only refers to big cities such as Los Angeles, but also includes communities and small towns (the friction between cylinder and piston ring in engine, cam and tappet, machine tool guide rail and worm drive all belong to this kind). Take Los Angeles County (in the United States, the county is larger than the city) as an example. It governs 88 cities. Each city has a community newspaper, which is sent to residents' mailboxes free of charge. The community newspaper publishes city and community activities, surrounding business information, city hall activity announcements and various preferential and discount advertisements. The Monterey Park I rented is a multi-ethnic city with more Chinese and Mexicans. The community newspaper even has a special page in Chinese and Spanish. At the same time with the community newspaper, there are free campus newspapers, enterprise newspapers, church leaflets and pamphlets

from daily life to spiritual life, paper products "package" the lives of American people, and paper media are not far away from American society

from PC Internet to mobile Internet, the Internet industry in the United States has comprehensive business and high user penetration. Whether it is information content or social media, whether it is e-commerce or video entertainment, there are well-known stations and app applications. Why is paper still popular? Will Americans still watch and care about paper products? Isn't paper wasted

when I talked about this topic with my American neighbors, they were surprised by my doubt. Opening the mailbox every day to receive commodity posters and direct selling magazines has become a part of life. The delivery of paper documents for important matters proves the value of "black and white". As for reading community newspapers and campus newspapers, there is no conflict with the information content in them. In their eyes, paper products are more real and realistic

I think the views of neighbors are only representatives of some Americans. I have seen unopened and beautifully printed advertisements and leaflets in some trash cans, and I have seen community newspapers and campus newspapers that are not "taken care of" in school libraries and community libraries. It can be seen that paper products are also not "welcome". Especially when important folders are mixed in a pile of dispensable mailbox publicity materials and missed, paper products are more efficient and direct than electronic products

it has long been reported by the media that the United States is a large country of resource consumption, and its wood consumption ranks first in the world. Every time I take out a well-made and thick advertising manual from the mailbox, I don't know whether I should throw it directly into the trash can from the mailbox or keep it for a period of time and give them the same ending
