It is made out of plastic so you can produce it and help the environment. Plastic is bad for the environment.
Plastic bags are nonbiodegradable so they pollute the environment by entering the food chain. The chemicals used in this either mix with the soil or are eaten by animals and accumulate in the food chain so that predators can be killed.
the use of plastic can be harmful to the environment because you often can't reuse it without chemicals getting into the plastic so you throw it away so harmful chemicals get into the landfill you should be aware to not to use the polythene bags because you should use paper bags this may help environment
Plastic bags rip to easily and it is way better to use a reusable bags! If you think about it then there is know reason to use plastic bags! They hurt the environment, they rip easily and when you go to the store they store like puts only two things in them! Well anyways if you go to chicobags.com and buy a chico bag they hold up to25 Pounds, unlike the plastic bags! Plastic bags are nothing but trouble,so get some echo friendly bags.
Plastic bags do not decompose properly, and cause harm to the environment. In today's day and age, this is a very bad thing, due to pollution from heavy industrialisaton. It is recommended that you invest either in an eco-friendly bag (available for a small sum either online or from stores) or bio-degradable plastic bags (the same.) We also recommend you contact your local stores and ask them to provide eco-friendly bags if they do not do so already.
Without humans, plastic bags would not exsist, so yes.
- plastic bags are not biodegradable, so they get littered onto a wasteland which causes soil erosion causing damage and harm to the trees. If plastic bags are burnt, they emit hazardous gases causing air pollution which causes damage on the ozone layer.
Earth survival is human being survival so if you are human beingsay no to plastic bags !!!
yes canvas bags are great for the environment! You can reuse them so they are only made once, but used millions more times! most of them are big and strong to carry all your shopping according to statistics, it is estimated that we use 500 billion plastic bags per year. that's 5million million! so everybody use canvas bags!!!! Green Goddess It is estimated that by using just 1 canvas bag, you will eliminate the need for 1000 plastic bags!
Paper bags. Because it is made from kraft paper and plastic grocery bags are made from plastic, which kraft paper is stronger than plastic, so paper bags can support more weight.
plastic bags became popular because it made people lives easier when they shop.
so that then we can recdycle it
When you throw away a plastic bag it will take anything up to a million years for it to decompose and break down. So if you throw away a plastic bag you are leaving something behind that is going to still be here waay in the future. If we dont want the world to be full of plastic then I advise you to reuse your plastic bag, so people don't make more plastic bags which means MORE WASTE!
yes all plastic bags can be recycledActually the so called "green" plastic bags designed to decompose cannot be recycled. Even one mixed in with a batch of ordinary bags being recycled can ruin it all.
plastic bags can not make you stronger so youre just wasting your time squeezing it all day
They take so long to break down and because they are lightweight and moisture resistant they can end up anywhere. Some facts: * Around 80 million plastic shopping bags end up as rubbish in our environment each year. * They can be hazardous to wildlife by entangling animals or being mistaken for food. Thousands of whales, seals, turtles and birds die each year as a result of plastic bags. * Plastic bags can block drains, trap birds and kill livestock. * Plastic bags are made from non-renewable natural resources such as crude oil, gas and coal. * 75% of bags are imported into Australia. * Over half of the plastic bags used are from supermarkets.
yes but it can take 200 hundred years! its so bad for the environment so please dont try it.
The real impact of plastic bag litter is felt on wildlife both in the marine environment and in rural areas. Tens of thousands of whales, birds, seals and turtles are killed every year from plastic bag litter in the marine environment as they often mistake plastic bags for food such as jellyfish. Plastic bags, once ingested, cannot be digested or passed by an animal so it stays in the gut. Plastic in an animal's gut can prevent food digestion and can lead to a very slow and painful death. Your welcome
Yes you can plastic. Many "plastic" shopping bags are now made from rice. Their life is fairly short and they disintegrate completely, so saving real plastic bags from polluting our world.
Plastic are made up of polymers. This polymers have various chemicals mixed in it that are not bio degradable. Normal bacterial activity is not enough to eat away long polymer chains making up any plastic. Also the chemicals used to make plastic bags degrade the quality of soil they are in hence they pollute the environment.
My wife and I used to get about 10 plastic bags a week before we switched to reusable bags, so we save about 500 bags per year, at least. These have all been replaced with just a few reusable bags.
So the people selling you the plastic bags can become richer while sounding environmentally friendly
It helps the environment. For e.g we could recycle paper into a paper bag and many other things can be recycled so atop using plastic bags.
Many people do, so it's quite safe. However we should all try to reduce our usage of disposable plastic so re-usable boxes would be better.
Is plastic coldish? No, it's usually room temperature. Is plastic groovy? Yeah, it's a great invention and it's interesting to think of all the different ways it's used. Is it cool to get plastic bags when you shop? No. It never decomposes; it just clogs up our ecosystem and plastic bags are creating dead zones in the ocean. That means no more delicious fish. Plastic bags are also made of petroleum, which is not cool politically. If you reuse bags, you get the benefit of not killing so many fish, not "consuming" any more than you have to which is better for the environment, and not using more petroleum. Paper bags are better, as they'll decompose someday if they're not in a landfill.
