Pros & Cons On Using Non Woven Bags
Globally, an inhabitant of the country like the United
States, Canada, France, Belgium and Australia, consume on
average 300 to 350 plastic bags per year. But 80% of these

there is the talk of a seventh continent of
non-biodegradable waste in the North Pacific. Its area would
be six times that of France! What to do with these bags that
are flooding the landscape and degrade? Can we not use them?
If not, would it be possible to recycle or reduce them for
other purposes? And in the future, would it be possible to
design with materials that would have the three

Environmental benefits of using a non-woven bag

contribution to the preservation of the environment. It
makes you actually participate in sustainable development,
without compromising your living comfort. This assumes,
however, attention and commitment of every moment. This is a
responsible attitude in protecting our environment, preserve
our health and that of our children. No non-bio-degradable

Many Benefits to Non-Woven bags
* Recycle bags, allow first to decrease their production.
This would result, to reduce the industry running time,
energy consumption and the emission of pollutants.
* Releases of bags in the bins will also be lowered, and
avoid less concern with garbage, incinerators, and the
general public. That is why they label "green bag".
* The designers are stepping then in the race to find the
best reusable bag, the best price, environmentally friendly
and reusable. Reusable bags will convey several times, and
for a while, branding the companies that provide them.
* Some well-crafted bags are still far more attractive than
simple plastic bags!
Some Disadvantages of Non-Woven Bags
* The green bag requires some care before receiving food.
First, it must be in good condition and contain no holes or
tears. The bag for transporting food products, must not be
mixed with other bags which would have been used for the
transport of non-food objects. So you have to separate the
bags depending on their use from the start.
* Non-woven bags are not safe for everyday health, as is
sometimes thought. Poorly cleaned, they become the seat of
dangerous bacteria. We serve daily thick plastic bags, to do
everything for our products from the butcher for example.
Reuse encourages us to use them alternately once for fish,
and another time for vegetables. We can put them anywhere,
at our different races and contaminations arrive very
quickly, without our notice.
