Instead of using plastic bags would you rather go for a paper bag or for a so called eco bag ( cotton, tote,..) ?
Paper bags are considered something linked to nature, something related to our past, when no plastic was used.
But how are they made?
As you can see, both manufacturing processes use water, but 220 litres are needed to produce 1000 plastic bags, while 3800 litres of water are needed to produce the same number of paper bags .
In terms of energy used and greenhouse gases being emitted during manufacturing, the plastic bag comes out best.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE THE SUSTAINABILITY OF YOUR CHOICE?
ON HOW MANY TIME YOU REUSE THEM!
Obviously you can reuse plastic bags as much as you want but, the problem with PLASTIC IS THAT IT NEVER BIODEGRADES!
It breaks down in tiny little pieces but it never disappear!
As it has been shown that between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year, we RECOMMEND NOT TO OPT FOR THOSE!
The process to make #EcoBags may needs water and energy too, but you can reuse them forever!
