Globalbags

ECOLOGY
        It is estimated that about 90% of plastic bags end their life in landfills and there are some 150 manufactured in the world per person per year. Plastic bags are harmful to the environment for various reasons: non-biodegradable nature of plastic they are made of and the manufacturing of polyethylene which is made from fossil fuels with the consequent emission of pollutants gases.


One of the most supported alternatives is to replace them with paper bags. However, any comparison of paper bags with plastic ones shows that producing and transporting paper bags may be more contaminant in some ways due to the use of trees for processing, the energy used to convert the cellulose, pulp paper and not forgetting all the chemicals necessary for the process. But we have to continue to carry our purchases, and that is why we propose the 3Rs rule: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

 

Reduce

If we reduce the problem we'll have to solve less. 
  • Reduce or eliminate the amount of materials intended for single use (Example, packaging).

Reuse

  • Reusing a material or object to give it a second useful life. All goods or materials may have more than one (example, nonwoven bags may be used several times due to its extreme resistance).

Recycle

  • Recycling is the most popular R because it is now preferred to use recyclable containers (plastic and especially bricks).
