What chemical is used to make pastic bags?
Supermarket carrier bags are mostly poly(ethene) which is commonly called polythene. High density poly(ethene) will make thicker and stronger bags than low density poly(ethene). The strong ones that supermarkets sell you that have a 'woven' feel to them are poly(propene) otherwise known as polypropylene.
Asked in Waste and Recycling
How does poly bags if diposed carelesly can cause problems?
If anything is disposed of improperly or carelessly, it can cause problems. My problem with the disposal of plastic bags and poly bags has more to do with how it is being disposed as opposed to what is being disposed. Unfortunately, there is a lot of chatter concerning the banning of plastic shopping bags and poly bags. I think this is a very bad idea. It will destroy US jobs. Less than 1% of all plastic waste in landfills is attributed to plastic bags. We put more plastic based products into our bags at the supermarket than the plastic bags themselves. Reusable / recyclable bags are the only answer along with strict recycling laws.
