The world does not need plastic bags anymore

Plastic Bags [Image Source]

When we buy something in the supermarket or market, we always use plastic bags to pack the goods shopping. The plastic that we use can not be destroyed naturally. We can imagine if every person in this world do the same behavior, when shopping in supermarkets every day. Someday our world will be full of plastic waste that cannot be decomposed naturally. We can recycle them, but it needs much money to do it.

I think we should replace the plastic bags with paper bags. Some fast food restaurant has done it like Mc Donald or KFC. Paper bags is strong enough to carry our goods shopping until we get home. We can bring it back when we go shopping again tomorrow, this is more efficient. Furthermore, we should be charge for every paper bags that we used from supermarket. It means, we cannot use it for free. Everyone will be more responsible to keep their own bags. Because they do not want to get charge anymore for another paper bags.

The idea addressed in saving our world environment from plastic waste that cannot be decomposed naturally. We can reduce the use of plastic bag in our daily life.The most benefit is human being and also world environment. If every single person in this world can reduce or even eliminate the use of plastic bags. Our world will be safe from the bad effect of it.

First of all we should make a campaign or an advertisement to safe our world from plastic waste. We can use may ways to do it, use internet, television, poster and so on. In the campaign we can explain the dangerous of plastic waste in our life.

It’s a little bit difficult to measure the outcome. I think, if every single person in this world has reduced the use of plastic bags in their daily life, it is a great outcome for this idea. Or we can ask local government especially the public services that handle waste disposal, about monthly statistics of plastic waste disposal in their area. If it reduce from one month to another it is a great outcome also.

*just a simple idea

  1. Percuma juga pakai paper bag. Harus berapa banyak lagi pohon yang harus ditebang untuk membuat tas kertas? Tas kertas bukanlah solusi yang “green” 🙂

  6. I support you for reducing the use of plastic bag, but actually paper bag needs 20% more from trees than plastic does so paper bag actually more harmful, and also it’s very thin and easy to ripped. i agree with toto bag though
