What are eco bags?
Eco friendly bags are a great alternative to disposable plastic bags. Each year billions of plastic bags end up as ugly litter. Eco friendly bags rarely end up as litter. Plastic bags eventually break down into tiny toxic bit polluting our soil, river, lakes, and oceans. Eco Friendly bags are not only reusable, but eco friendly bags are made from recycled materials. Production of plastic bags requires vast amounts of oil which produce large amounts of green house gases. The production of eco friendly bags does not produce these greenhouse gases. Countless animals needlessly die each year due to the litter caused from plastic bags as well as the pollution. Plastic bags are among the 12 items of debris most often found in coastal cleanups. Eco friendly bagseliminate the need for plastic bags. When plastic "photo degrades", it ends up in our oceans. Incidentally, it appears much like plankton, and then is consumed by fish. Fish eat it, and it winds up on your dinner table. The recipe for making paper bags starts with 1 part pulp, 400 parts water!!!! Now that's a waste of water!!!! The recycling of plastic emits heavy metals into the air causing extreme air pollution. That's terrible for the environment as well as those inhabiting it (YOU!!!!) Eco friendly bags are not only great for the environment, but they are practical and convenient for you as the consumer to use. Greenhouse gases are the result of emissions caused by burning fossil fuels during the production of plastic and paper bags. The greenhouse effect is caused when infrared radiations from the earth's surface are prevented from escaping into the outer space. The consequence is global warming. Eco friendly bags not only prevent global warming by preventing the need to manufacture plastic bags, but eco friendly bags also reduce the litter and pollution caused by the use of plastic bags.
