By now all of us must have heard about global warming, pollution and the need for saving the earth. Some of us understand the seriousness of this issue and try our best to save the world while others hardly do anything. Some people think that there is nothing they can do that can save the world. But everyone has a role to play in saving the environment and by using eco-friendly bags instead of plastic bags can be a start.
The following are some of the reasons you need to use eco-friendly bags:
Most of the eco-friendly bags are made out of paper and cloth, and you can reuse them for various purposes. Cloth bags can be used as shopping bags, and you can also use them as lunch bags, gift bags, use it as a purse etc.
Does not pollute the environment:
As the name suggests, the eco-friendly bags are environment-friendly which means that they do not cause harm to the environment. Paper bags are easily degradable, and they do not cause harm to the ground when they are thrown away. Plastics take many years to degrade, and in that process, it affects the land and causes pollution. Plastics, when thrown in the ground, create land pollution and when thrown in the ocean it causes water pollution and the same does not happen with eco-friendly bags.
Recycled plastics outweigh its value:
Many recycle companies do not recycle plastic as they think that it does not have any value and thus prefer to throw it off rather than recycling it. Recycling plastic is quite expensive but they are sold at a cheap rate, so many companies do not recycle plastic. We all know the damages plastics can do to the environment when it is thrown away. To avoid this, we can do out small part by using eco-friendly bags.
Plastic bags are made out of non-renewable resources:
Plastic bags are made out of petroleum products and natural gas, and both these resources are not renewable, and thus we need to avoid using them. Plastic manufacturers are encouraged to make more plastic to increase the gas price.
These days many shops charge for the plastic bags they give and thus it is always good to carry a reusable bag with you so that you can avoid paying extra at every shop. Most of the reusable eco friendly bags last for many years
Most of the countries hardly have any space to dump all their wastes. The countries which have financial support incinerate their waste but others have to dump the scraps into landfills. By using plastic bags, you can do your part in reducing the waste that gets generated in the landfills.
