Why People Use Plastic Bags While Shopping

Submitted by Plastic Bag Partners

The need for shopping has been growing at a phenomenal rate as a result of increasing quality of life and population growth. Nowadays, we make use of various materials to package our shopping - plastic, paper, fabric, etc. However, the main materials that used for shopping these days are clear plastic bags. We use clear plastic bags for almost everything from packaging our groceries to newspaper bags used to package our newspaper deliveries. Below are a few reasons why plastic bags are the best alternative for packaging.

Plastic is preferred over paper because paper comes from trees, and cutting down trees to make paper bags causes the destruction of the environment. Moreover, paper bags cannot carry a heavy load and can very easily be destroyed by water. We should only use paper bags when carrying light weight, soft and dry stuff. Unlike plastic bags, paper bags are also not economical as they cannot be recycled and reused.

Clear plastic bags are more economical to use than fabric as fabric bags are too expensive. Fabric is also not stable on size and shape and is not suitable for packing items such as mattresses. Mattress bags are typically made from plastic as it has more tensile strength. Making use of fabric has adverse effects on the environment as it cannot decompose, and cannot be recycled and reused many times. Fabric, like paper, is not practical when carrying items that contain water as it gets soggy and can be damaged.

Clear plastic bags are therefore the most effective solution for packing shopping and other materials. They are made from the by-products of oil refining and are not harmful to the environment because manufacturers now produce biodegradable plastic bags. In addition to that, plastic bags can be recycled several times. They are solid and soft and come in a wide range of colors in order to cater for the tastes and preferences of different individuals. Plastic poly bags also provide an insulating layer and are flexible, sturdy and easy to process.

Another reason behind the growing popularity of plastic bags is that they are safe for packing food. Paper bags may contain toxins that may contaminate food making them hazardous to your health. Similarly, paper and fabric bags have pores and are not impervious to viruses and bacteria that may find their way to your food. On the other hand, clear plastic bags are made from oil and the heat is used to detoxify the bags.

There are a number of plastic bags suppliers and finding one with a warehouse close to you should not be a problem. A majority of poly, mattress, and flat bags suppliers have websites where they outline the range of goods that they offer. Good suppliers will typically have the bags delivered within a day or two. It is advisable to compare the services and prices of a few suppliers in order that you may make an informed purchase. Choosing the right plastic bag supplier will ensure that you get the best quality at the most reasonable price.
