When getting a bin bag for your home or business premises, various issues are taken into consideration. First, there is the size. You want a bag that is compatible to the bin that it will be put in. Go for a bag that is too big, and there will be unsightly overhang- plus you’ll have just incurred extra unnecessary costs. Go for a bag that is too small, and it won’t fit the bin, or there won’t be room to tie and carry it.

You want cabin that can handle the weight, with the material being strong enough to hold the contents tossed into it without the bag tearing. The type of bag also includes aspects such as its environmental sustainability. After all, you want to effectively get rid of the waste without putting the surrounding ecosystems at risk.

The Plastic Menace
Plastic bags come with burdensome environmental costs. Firstly, there is the production process, which generates loads of carbon emissions into the environment. Those bags that are tossed out with the waste end up in landfills. Since they don’t biodegrade, but rather simply break down into smaller bits, they microplastics end up being released into the environment. The associated chemicals- such as the plasticizers and flame retardants in the material can wind up in animals, resulting in different sets of problems. This is especially with the scavengers scrounging around for meals at these sites, which usually end up accidentally consuming bits of the plastic. Here, due to their lightweight and aerodynamic nature, they are easily lifted by wind, and carried off to far-flung areas. Those that get blown down streets, the plastic bags that wind up on tree branches, those that enter storm drains, all through to the bags that get to the sea- they wreak havoc wherever they go. Blocked drains are a headache for municipalities, costing them millions in clean-ups and resolving damages from flooding. Googling “animals eating plastic” shows hundreds of images and stories from around the world of animals that have been affected by plastics. Foraging sheep and cows, camels out in the deserts to whales in the deep blue of the ocean- the plastic makes its way into food chains. The leatherback sea turtle, an endangered species, is often referenced due to the huge impact that plastic has had on the animal, with it confusing the bags for jellyfish which are its main diet. The ingested plastic blocks digestive tracts, resulting in the death of the animal. The importance of reducing plastic usage cannot be overemphasised. One of the core areas that is affected is waste disposal. Turning to units like the Earth2Earth 30″ x 39″ Standard Refuse Sack Clear (Slim Jim) enables you to play your role in protecting the ecosystem from the dangers posed by plastic.
