Plastics market opposes ban on plastic grocery store bags

Zero statutory law will ever make everyone happy. As the Decatur, Georgia Environmental Sustainability Plank is trying to decide whether to ban plastic grocery store bags, the plastics industry is within arms because of ban proposals in several states up. In the United States municipal codes in lots of cities, beginning in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA in 2007, banned the use of plastic grocery bags. The plastics sector wants to observe stricter recycling laws and regulations put into drive instead of an all-out ban on plastic grocery bags.

If people would make a conscious effort to recycle their plastic grocery store bags, they would not only be helping the environment, but the recycling industry needs those plastic bags and makes brand-new items - extrusion system - out of them. The plastic luggage are cleaned then melted down and pressured via an extruder to create plastic pellets in a more manageable form for transport to companies that will turn much of it into composite lumber, which is a combination of plastic and sawdust bags. The plastic pellets will also be used by various other plastics companies to help cut down on the manufacturer of brand-new plastic. An assortment of recycled plastic and brand-new plastic are used rather than new plastic used to make containers and bags.

Perhaps the best answer is one which will make most people happy. Recycling plastic grocery store bags will keep them out of landfills and you can feel great about the resulting products that are produced from a share of post-consumer waste, i.e. recycled plastic grocery store bags.
