Recycled Plastic in Bags
Here is the truth about recycled plastic bags. After searching for several years to find a recycled content PP bag, the Company found that many claims of recycled content are—at best—unreliable.  They’ve seen bags that say: "I used to be a plastic water bottle". But plastic bottles are made of plastic #2, and reusable bags are mostly made from plastic #5. These types of plastic are different materials, as different as cotton is from wool, or aluminum is from steel. Recycling one type into another is technically not possible.
For a long time, paper bags were considered a more environmental alternative. However, consider their whole life cycle and you find a different story.  A look at paper bag manufacturing, usage, and even disposal problems, and you will see why they are not a better choice.
Compared to plastic, making a paper bag:
  • emits 51% more global warming gasses
  • creates 50 times more water pollution
  • uses 4 times more raw materials
  • consumes 2 times more energy
Once used, paper bags are unlikely to be re-used. They tear easily and are made for one time usage.
Although paper bags are biodegradable, about 80% percent of all paper bags end up in landfills. There, they do not biodegrade because of a lack of oxygen. They also cost more to landfill because they take up much more space by weight and volume than plastic bags do.
Every study ever done shows reusable bags as by far the best choice for the environment.   Help keep our forests green and use reusable bags!  Here is a comparison chart which shows the lifecycle of different types of bags


I received the orange yoga bag in the picture to the left.  The other purple yoga bags will be for my Giveaway!  The bag is soft and colorful.  It is wide enough for a grocery order, but can be used to fold clothes, children's items, and much more.  I liked carrying the bag because it was fun and vibrant, as well as good for the environment.  1 Bag at a Time is working to send a message to its consumers that recycled bags are safe for the environment and I respect their mission.
