The truth about plastic

  • 100% Recyclable

    Use Earth911 to find plastic bag collection sites and recyclers near you.

  • 100% Reuseable

    Over 90% consumers reuse plastic bags multiple times.

  • Not made from oil

    In the US, nearly 80% of polyethylene, the type of plastic used to make plastic bags, is produced from natural gas.

Better than the alternatives

Plastic vs. Paper

  • 2,000 paper bags =280 pounds. 2,000 plastic bags =30 pounds.

  • Plastic bags are stronger at stress points.

  • Manufacturing plastic bags takes less energy, less water and produces less CO2.

Plastic vs. plastic woven or non-woven polypropylene reusable bags

  • Reusable bags, made from the plastic woven and non-woven polypropylene, are imported and have a higher carbon footprint. They are generally made with crude oil-based materials.

  • PP reusable bags are almost impossible to recycle — most end up in a landfill.

  • The average shopper would have to use the same reusable bag an average of about 314 times before it had less environmental impact than a plastic bag.

Landfill information

  • Plastic bags make up less than 0.5% of the US municipal solid waste stream.

  • Paper, NOT plastic, accounts for more than 40% of a landfill’s content.

  • In today’s landfill, virtually nothing decomposes.

Litter

  • Cigarette butts, chewing gum and candy wrappers, NOT plastic bags, account for almost all litter.

  • Education and responsible practices are the key to reducing litter.
