Single-use plastic bags, once banned in some markets prior to Covid-19, have emerged as a health care favorite. States across the U.S. have suspended the ban regarding plastic bags in retail trade during the outbreak. People are turning to plastic shopping bags as a measure to minimize the spread of the disease.

Some grocery stores and supermarkets now prohibit consumers from bringing their own reusable bags. In line with this, the demand for single-use plastic bags rises. As a response to this essential need, Atlantic Poly has doubled the production of our plastic grocery and medical bags. We manufacture both reusable and recyclable plastic grocery and shopping bags to many grocery stores and retail stores across the US.

So the question is why are plastic bags banned in the first place. It appears they contribute to consumer safety. Considering that our plastic bags for grocery are 100% recyclable and has a lower impact on the environment, it’s time to reconsider the plastic ban bill now and in the post Covid-19 future.
