Getting Rid Of Waste Without Putting Mother Nature At Risk- Turn To The Earth2Earth Swing Bin Liners 310 mm x 620 mm x 750 mm
Conventional modes of waste management, where plastic bags are used, are a threat to the ecosystem. For starters, the plastic itself can take up to a millennium to degrade. Its persistence is one of the main reasons why landfills are rapidly increasing in size, since more of the products are churned out on a daily basis. With landfills, additional problems such as increased methane production occur, which is attributed to the anaerobic decomposition of the organic matter under the heaps of waste. Plastic bags are also light and flimsy. When improperly disposed, they get carried away by wind to far-out areas, down the streets, up the trees, in the storm drains and way out to the sea. 80% of the 7 million tonnes of waste forming the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is plastic. From the large bags to the microplastics out in the environment, they come with plenty of risks. You’ve probably heard of the sea turtles confusing the bags to be jellyfish and consuming them, which quickly results in their death, and watched news reports of whales getting washed up along coastlines, with their stomachs loaded with plastic products. Sea birds, livestock on land- plastic affects them all. This has resulted in an increased push for reliance on products that are safer for Mother Nature. This affects the entire spectrum of packaging films, from shopping bags being used, all through to the bin bags that are part of the waste management program. The Earth2Earth Swing Bin Liners 310 mm x 620 mm x 750 mm come in to enable you get rid of the trash and take part in the sustainable practices that are being encouraged around the world.

Coming in affordable packages of 50 bags each, you get to purchase the quantity that meets your specific establishment’s needs without straining your budget.
Turning Away From Plastic
It’s a global problem. Though accurate statistics on the exact number of plastic bags manufactured today are elusive, according to the UN it could be anywhere between 1 to 5 trillion. Even at the lower limit, that’s still a vast amount of plastic. They end up overwhelming waste collection systems. What’s more, the flimsy bags are some of the least recycled plastic materials. While polyethylene can be recycled, plastic bags are usually turned away from sorting facilities since they tend to jam up the machinery which isn’t suited to dealing with the flimsy film. The plastic bags rank amongst the top items found along the beach during clean-ups, and proof of the damage they cause to the environment has been well documented. The bags are often consumed whole by marine life, from sea turtles to dolphins and whales. Scenes of whales that have washed up on beaches with bags and other plastics crammed into their stomachs have become common. Even when broken down- like when the tiny amphipods shred the bags into microscopic fragments, contents of the material- like plasticisers and flame retardants used with plastic products, still pose a threat to the environment, and when swallowed by marine animals they make their way up the food chain. There is a growing push against plastics, with more emphasis being made on processes like recycling, to cases of outright bans of the bags. In waste management, products like the Earth2Earth Swing Bin Liners 310 mm x 620 mm x 750 mm are becoming increasingly popular as an eco-friendly alternative for handling the trash generated in domestic and commercial establishments.
