Great American Packaging, Inc., New Reasons Why You Should Not Be Using Reusable Grocery Bags.

Great American Packaging, Inc., a leader in custom poly bag manufacturing, shares information on why using reusable grocery bags is the wrong choice for consumers.

 
PRLog - Jun. 20, 2012 - Great American Packaging has recently shed some light on the fact that reusable grocery bags are the perfect environment for hosting and spreading bacteria from food or airborne contagions.

A recent article in WebMD* reported that reusable grocery bags are an excellent host for the norovirus. The norovirus is a contagious fast spreading stomach bug that survives in dark moist places such as reusable grocery bags. The problem is consumers have been persuaded to shift from original plastic bags to the reusable grocery bags over the years.

“Consumers have been led to believe that plastic bags are awful for the environment when in actuality this is not the case. Plastic bags are 100% recyclable and 80-90%** of the population reuses plastic bags at least once. Plastic bags can be reused as trash bin liners, lunch sacks and picking up after pets. Plastic bags are actually helping the environment by turning potential green house gas emissions into useable product,” states Beth Smith, Director of Marketing.

The raw materials used to produce plastic bags are derived from ethane, a bi-product product of the oil and gas refining process. Converting ethane into polyethylene actually reduces the number of greenhouse gas emissions compared to burning ethane as a waste product. When studying the facts, plastic bags are truly the definition of: reduce, reuse, and recycle.
