Plastic Bags: They Just Don’t Make SensePosted on June 13, 2011 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
OK, we’ve all heard it before, how bad they are for the environment, how they are a waste of fossil fuels, how they are ruining the planet. So why is it such a tough nut to crack?
Well, as we all know, some habits are just extremely hard to break. Look at smoking. There’s no question as to the negative side effects of smoking. There are government regulations in place to make it harder to smoke. And yet people still light up. Why? Because smoking is an addiction, just like plastic bags are an addiction. Sure they may not damage your lungs like smoking does, but they are convenient, free (for now), and easily accessible, so use them we do.
