With the acceleration of modernization, automobile enterprises are developing and changing while growing. The competition in China's automobile market is intensifying, and the packaged finished goods, such as bag packaging products and Plastic Packaging (PP), are hot in the development of enterprises. Plastic is good because it is not easy to damage; but waste plastics are not easy to damage. Almost all plastic waste cannot be degraded in a short time, and plastic has been eroding the whole biological group on the earth through the food chain circulation system since its birth, and its harm is self-evident. Based on this, this paper discusses and analyzes the reduction of PP in the automobile manufacturing industry; this paper briefly analyzes the harm and causes of excessive PP, and puts forward the methods of using tank truck transportation, recyclable folding buckets instead of disposable PP buckets, and adding lining in PP buckets to make PP bucket recycled; Finally, the static stress of PP barrel (PPB) is tested by calculating the side pressure of PPB. With the increase of material depth, the static stress and drop impact stress increase, and the impact stress is much greater than the static stress; with the increase of drop height, the impact stress increases, and the circumferential stress is greater than the vertical stress; it shows that the PPB is easy to be damaged only when it is subjected to great impact when falling. This method can be used for PP reduction.
