Visit any Shopping mall, Grocery Store, Garment Store, food packaging companies or normal store you will find many types of plastic bags. Buy food items packing is in plastic bags, Buy Liquid Food Item packing in Plastic Bottles. The manufacturer are least bother about the Nature, they are only bothered about making more and more profits in business.
The Government of most countries is taking some serious steps to stop using the plastic bags. Even they are taking some penalty from them. But is that going to help 'NO' we the people have to take the steps for not buy any item packed in these kind of packing.
All the plastic that has been made is still around in smaller and smaller pieces,' says Stephanie Barger and that is correct.
I simply do not understand that when you have got many other options in against to Plastic Bags then why peoples are not acting on that.
Paper bags are the best for any kind of packaging, may be coffee packaging, tea packaging, liquid packaging, nuts packaging, etc.
I have talked to many store owner and have discussed about this issue but they are helpless they says that if the manufacturer of both the product and the packaging supply us in plastic.. We cannot convert them in paper packaging. They even said to me there are consumer who claims to give in the Paper Bags. But.........
And I agree with them, as if you spend some time on internet and search few such manufacturer who are really concern about the nature and they supply good quality of packaging with eco-friendly raw materials, nice colors, various sizes, and various type of packaging for various type of products.
But one thing the public do not notice. Main raw material to manufacture paper is trees. So if we use more paper than we chop more trees. To manufacture 10 kgs of paper we require 100 liters of water. So environment is damaged due to chopping of more trees and forests are destroyed and water is consumed more. So according to me if plastic is used than It can be recycled and no forest is destroyed. So plastic is helping environment rather than destroying.
I have even seen packaging for sea food, pharmaceutical, tobacco, coffee, tea, wine means all types of packaging for solid and liquid both. Amazing....!!
There are many more advantages of using paper instead of plastic and most importantly is the nature. There is saying 'As you sow so shall you reap'
The people who understand this they have done some good things.
Lastly I would request to all .PLEASE STOP PLASTIC'
