We don’t normally shout out loud about environmental issues on Daily Bits, but an article that I read some time back on the BBC has got me thinking. The article is titled “What should be done about plastic bags?” and the numbers presented are rather surprising.
We seem to have this idea that plastic bags are bad, and the reusable bag movement has become so big that more and more supermarkets have totally done away with plastics. But is it really justified? Does doing away with plastic bags really make a huge positive impact on the environment?
