Shopping bags are most important items when we buy something, shopping bags will make it easier for us when we carry results when we shop, what happens if you shop a lot of things but don't bring a shopping bag? It will definitely be a hassle when carrying groceries.

But we have to be smarter when choosing shopping bags, it would be nice to use the best for our environment, so that it doesn't have a negative impact because after being used it will become garbage. Here I try to give some opinions on types of shopping bags that are commonly used in the community around me.

Plastic shopping bag
  • PLASTIC SHOPPING BAG

Plastic shopping bag is a type of plastic bag that is used as a shopping bag and is made of various types of plastic. These bags are sometimes called disposable bags, because they are usually only used to carry things from store to house.

However, many are reusing plastic bags to be used as containers for other goods or used as garbage packaging, now modern plastic shopping bags are increasingly recyclable or biodegradable. In recent decades, many countries have introduced laws that limit the sale of plastic bags, including my country, namely Indonesia, which has for last ten years restricted use of plastic shopping bags in an effort to reduce waste and plastic pollution.

Mini paper bag
  • PAPER SHOPPING BAG

Paper shopping bags are bags made of thick cardboard. These bags are commonly used as shopping and packaging bags, mostly by supermarkets as gift bags. But now it's not only supermarkets, but several small shops are also using this bag.

Paper shopping bags now not only function as wrapping paper. There is another side that adds value to consumers, namely appearance. A nice and unique appearance for a paper bag is an advantage in terms of promotion. Consumers are expected to always remember products sold by including company's name and logo on paper shopping bag.

This type of shopping bag is also more environmentally friendly because it can be recycled and does not cause soil pollution because it is easily decomposed, although cost of making this bag is more expensive, but if judged from safety point of view, this type of bag is more recommended to be used.

Mini fabric bag
  • FABRIC SHOPPING BAG

As the name implies, this type of shopping bag is made of sewn fabric so that it can be used as a container to carry groceries. This type of bag has many advantages compared to both types above. Main thing is that this type of shopping bag is proven to be stronger than other types, so it can be used to carry groceries that have a heavy load. This type of bag is also usually made from leftover fabric, so manufacturing cost is cheaper because it uses patchwork.

Cloth shopping bags are now is most popular bags because they have advantages over other types and can be used repeatedly so they have a high economic value.

Which type of bag do you usually use? Actually, all types of shopping bags have same use, only difference in economic value and impact after use. So be wiser in choosing because your choice will have an effect in future. lol

Thank you for reading my writing to the end, hopefully it can add to your insight!

LOVE OUR EARTH BY REDUCING PLASTIC WASTE

Given the pace of environmental degradation due to none degradable products, it is always best to use products that are degradable for shopping. Although in my city plastics are used often. But we are glad to have factories that recycle them.

I'm happy to hear that in your area there is already plastic recycling, but reducing the use of plastic is still the best choice to be more environmentally friendly.

Any bag that are quality, eco bags are widely use now even here in Philippines. The good thing about plastics nows is that, it can be recycled and people find options to reuse it instead of garbaging.

You're right, but it's better to use a reusable shopping bag so you don't leave trash behind.
