Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MANCHESTER, England - Oct 21, 2016 - Studies have revealed how dangerous and deadly plastic bags are for our environment. They are virtually present inside each one of us through our food chain.
Fogo islands have introduced a ban on the use of plastic bags. According to Brad Cull, who is the manager of Cull’s Foodland in Joe Batt’s Arm, due to the bag ban on the island last year, his store now only uses plastic bags for wine and liquor bottles. He also points out that his store has been receiving positive feedback from tourists and only a couple of customers have been against switching to paper. Other store managers on Fogo Island say that they are happy running a business without plastic bags and have no plans to bring them back. They have also noticed that most of the locals do miss the plastic bags at all. Customers are now opting for reusable bags. Many stores are offering cardboard boxes to pack up items for customers. People are accepting this change positively and are happy to see a cleaner and tidier Fogo. The store managers said that ditching plastic isn’t only just good for the environment, but it also saves a lot of their business money as well. Although, paper bags are more expensive, but the volume used after the ban is a lot less. There are few stores on Fogo who are still using plastic bags and are not ready to accept this change.
More and more countries across the globe are now banning or levying a charge on the usage of Plastic Bags. Studies have revealed that Plastic Carrier Bags tend to prove excessively hazardous for our environment especially marine life. They enter our water bodies with garbage and rain water and become a cause of choking for various aquatic animals. Plastic bags takes decades to decompose. They are non-recyclable and emit harmful gases when burnt. Always choose eco-friendly and recyclable paper bags and bags for life at reasonable rates from UK’s top online retailer, Pico bags.
