While all packaging, both paper and plastic, may have ecological drawbacks, plastic bags are still not bad, They are beneficial to retailers, their consumers, and they can even be beneficial to the environment.

There is much debate over which is more detrimental to the environment, paper bags or polyethylene bags. The truth is, when compared, each has advantages and disadvantages.
