1. The harm of plastic bags
When plastic bag was invented, it was considered as a great invention because it is a waterproof, sustainable material in nature. The cost of making a plastic bag is less than VND 200, and it takes less than 1 second to throw it away. However, it takes 500 – 1000 years to decompose. Here are just a few harmful effects of plastic bags:
Firstly, plastic bags cause harm right from the production stage: the production of plastic bags must use input materials such as oil and gas, plasticizers, heavy metals, colorants which are EXTREMELY dangerous to human health and environment because in the manufacturing process it will create CO2 that increases the greenhouse effect and global climate change.
Secondly, the existence of nylon in the environment will seriously affect soil and water, because plastic bags mixed into the soil will prevent oxygen from passing through the soil, causing soil erosion, making soil discolored and not porous, nutrition-low, thereby making the plant slow to grow.
Moreover, many plastic bags are made from pure petroleum. When they are burned, they will create exhaust gases containing dioxins that cause poisoning, endocrine effects, cancer, reduced immunity, digestive dysfunction and birth defects in children. Especially in some types of plastic bags mixed with sulfur, pure kerosene when burned with steam will form sulfuric acid in the form of acid rain, which is very harmful to the lungs.
Besides, plastic bags trapped deep in the sewers and canals also clog sewage and waterlogged. Wastewater stagnation points will be the place of many bacteria causing disease in humans.
Plastic bags made from PTE plastic are non-toxic, but the additives added to make plastic bags soft, flexible, and tough are extremely toxic. Plastic bags dyed with red green color in the market, if stored with processed food, will be toxic to food by containing metals such as lead and cadmium (substances that harm the brain and are the main cause of cancer).
2. Non-woven bags are an effective alternative to plastic bags
Despite the short life cycle, the quality of the non-woven bags is undisputed. It has many advantages such as high elasticity, standard absorbency, softness and toughness. By combining non-woven fabrics with decent materials, manufacturers create a variety of products that have a wide variety and common applications in life such as apparel, furniture, engineering or healthcare.
In addition, the non-woven bag has very good UV, antistatic and flame retardant properties. Using this cloth bag will not be “attacked” from harmful microorganisms, mold which often appear in ordinary fabrics.
Non-woven bags come in a variety of colors and retain color for a long time no matter how many times you wash.

This will help new customers to recognize your company image and name effectively.
Unlike plastic bags or paper bags that tear easily, unable to withstand great forces, non-woven bags can hold many heavy objects and reuse many times. This saves time and money, as you don’t have to regularly replace new bags. And most of all, there is no fear of indiscriminate litter – a cause of environmental pollution.
It can be said that the non-woven bag deserves a prominent point in contributing to the protection of a true living environment.
