Environmentally Friendly Plastic Bags
In the 1960s, plastics were just becoming popular. Polyethylene, which today is one of the world’s most ever-present plastics, had been created in 1898, and then again in 1933. But it wasn’t until 1953 that anyone figured out how to make high-density polyethylene—the plastic that’s identified in the recycling system as No. 2 and that’s generally used to make the type of grocery store plastic bags that California just banned.
The Polybags packaging manufacturer takes environmental matters very seriously and believe that we all have a responsibility to both our environment and the future generations who will inhabit our planet in years to come.

The manufacturer with an increasing range of packaging made from recycled content, along with an expanding range of content made from renewable materials. We constantly monitor and assess the production processes of plastic bags and the packaging we produce. We have put into practice ways to produce thinner, stronger polythene to use fewer materials for the same-strength end product, whilst we have also found ways to store our raw materials more competently.

- Americans use 100 billion plastic bags a year, which require 12 million barrels of oil to manufacture.
- It only takes about 14 plastic bags for the equivalent of the gas required to drive one mile.
- The average American family takes home almost 1,500 plastic shopping bags a year.
- According to Waste Management, only 1 percent of plastic bags are returned for recycling. That means that the average family only recycles 15 bags a year; the rest end up in landfills or as litter.
- Up to 80 percent of ocean plastic pollution enters the ocean from land.
- At least 267 different species have been affected by plastic pollution in the ocean.
- 100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags annually.
- One in three leatherback sea turtles have been found with plastic in their stomachs.
- Plastic bags are used for an average of 12 minutes.
- It takes 500 (or more) years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill. Unfortunately the plastic bags don’t break down completely, but instead photo-degrade, becoming microplastics that absorb toxins and continue to pollute the environment.
The problem with plastic bags
Plastic bags start out as fossil fuels and end up as deadly waste in landfills and the ocean. Birds often mistake tattered plastic bags for food, filling their stomachs with toxic debris. For hungry sea turtles, it’s nearly impossible to distinguish between jellyfish and floating plastic shopping bags. Fish eat thousands of tons of plastic a year, transferring it up the food chain to bigger fish and marine mammals. It is really shocking that because of the plastic bags the sea animals are getting troubled and they are facing the life threating situations.
Despite the facts we can’t do without plastic bags. We have almost forgotten other types of reusable shopping bags or paper bgas or jute bags. What we can do is to take care of themaking of the bag.
Make plastic your frinds, not your enemy. Avoid the things below to end plastic pollution:
- Say “no” to plastic bags that are not authentic. There are one million plastic carry bags used every year. A single plastic bag takes thousand years to get degraded. But you can set example by using only the bags that possessed permitted level of micron that is above 50 which are degradableble naturally.
- Buy only recyclable waterbottle. Keep a recyclable bottle in your bag, Plastic bottles –typically made from polyethylene terephthalate (Pet) –take over 400 years to naturally decompose.
- Avoid plastic cutlery and plastic straw and use only eco friendly items instead. Along with Plastic bags, keeping yourself away from the plastic made items are equally important.
