Plastic bags have been widely used in a larger portion of the globe for decades. Bigger ones are for holding trash; smaller ones are for the supplies we buy from the market. And then the ‘comrades’ of nature came along – the eco-friendly organizations that wanted to reduce the production of these bags that will not decay even in a million years. So, they pushed the utility of paper bags as a substitute. Aside from easily tearing when you don’t put your stuff carefully inside, however, paper companies have to cut down lots of trees to make them, that’s why they are not what’s best for us either.
At present, foldable shopping bags are ruling the supermarkets. SM Supermalls, probably the largest chain of department stores in the Philippines, has this as a gift with purchase.
Are shopping bags the smartest option for mankind?
