What is advantages and disadvantages of banning plastic bag?
Plastic bags are non-biodegradable. Once introduced into the environment, they take several years to decompose. Plastics add to the environmental pollution. They cannot be burnt as when burnt, they release poisonous gases. Plastic bags thrown in the garbage dump are swallowed by animals. These plastic bags choke their respiratory system and can even prove fatal. Therefore, we should avoid plastics as far as possible. If the plastic bags are avoided, the bags of bio-materials (raw materials) to be used where as these may affect in the quantity (availability) of our natural resources such as forest. These raw materials for natural fibres are mainly derived from plants and this means cutting a lot of trees. This leads to deforestation. But raw materials of synthetic materials are mainly petrochemicals. Hence, manufacturing synthetic fibres helps in the conservation of forests.
