There is a growing international movement to ban or discourage the use of plastic bags because of their environmental effects. Plastic bags are easily carried by the wind. They hang in bushes, float on rivers, flap from fences, clog drains, choke animals and affect the way the landscape looks. Few plastic bags are recycled and most types of plastic bags take hundreds of years to decay. In South Africa, plastic bags are so common they are called the ‘national flower’. In India, around 100 cows die each day from eating plastic bags that litter the streets.
Efforts have recently been made in some countries to reduce the use of plastic bags opting for reusable alternatives do your bit and reuse bags and say no to supermarket plastic bags.
