In a matter of fact, some clients may require a few more times of use before their end users drop it as waste. This kind of product seems not environmentally friendly enough when the first time we hear this kind of item under the global background which claims environmental protection and carbon neutrality, however, this item exists because of some real issues that we all have to face, Cost!
