Should you keep plastic bags?
The best thing to do with plastic bags that you are not going to use is to recycle them. I know several stores that have boxes located near the front door for people to bring their used plastic grocery bags to for recycling. The worst thing you can do is just throw them out where they can blow around and become litter.
Why should plastic bags not be left around in kids reach?
Plastic is a miracle substance. Like glass, plastic is waterproof and air tight, but plastic is flexible and much lighter than glass. Unfortunately, a thin film of plastic can also kill a child by suffocating him/her. Dozens of children (mostly infants) die every year because of plastic bags: Infants can roll over and get tangled in a thin bag like a dry cleaning bag left on a bed. Infants and toddlers can pull a bag over their heads and suffocate when they are unable to get them off. Sleeping infants can fall asleep next to a bag, roll over against it and suffocate. Dry cleaning bags, because they are large and extremely thin, are the most dangerous bags around the house. Garbage bags and thin plastic grocery bags are also dangerous around infants. There should be no plastic near an infant while he or she is sleeping. Even big, fluffy pillows and blankets can potentially suffocate an infant -- infants do not have the strength or awareness to get away from something once it covers the face.

What ingredients do you use to make a plastic bag?
plastic petrolum and natural gas. the main ingredients are petroleum and natural gas That is a good question. A huge majority of plastic bags are made out of... well... plastic! Some plastic bags are biodegradable(which means that when they are dumped into a landfill after use, it degrades into the soil) which benefits the environment greatly. Contents of a plastic bag are commonly now greener and made from renewable resources, though some grocery stores STILL haven't changed their ways, in the near future, we all hope that that will change. I hear that plastic bags are made out of petroleum and a couple other natural gasses. there made out of plastic it is made out of PLASTIC! Plastic, mostly, and some chemicals to temper and shape it.

What is the slogan of plastic pollution?
There's no solution to this pollution! Plastic is everywhere. Is there anywhere you can go in any large city or near any small town and not see plastic bags littering the environment? And consider the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It's a marine gyre larger than the state of Texas, and it has high concentrations of oceanic litter that is mostly floating plastic. How are we supposed to clean that up? A link is provided below.
