- The New Trend in Reusable Shopping Bags
June 25, 2016
Most plastic shopping bags are made of polyethylene, which is derived from ethylene. Each year, millions of plastic bags are disposed in landfills, which can negatively affect the environment. It can take several centuries before plastic bags decompose in landfills, and thus, continuous disposal of plastic bags can cause flooding and obstruct drainage systems. Single-use plastic bags also contribute to litter and increased atmospheric acidification. However, thinner plastic bags are more likely to decompose quicker than heavy duty plastic bags.
Many people are now choosing to go green, and make reusable grocery bags. They use the plastic bags to their fullest extent instead of discarding the bags. Using plastic bags for several purposes prior to disposing the bags in trash containers and dumpsters can significantly reduce the annual amount of plastic bag build-up in landfills.
