Plastic sacks are universally used packaging material, made in various designs, sizes and shapes. As they suit the evolving packaging trends they have secured a niche space in commercial, household and industrial environment dominating the packaging industry in India and worldwide. The sacks are usually made from polyethylene sheets which are specially designed depending on the purposes the sacks are desired for use.
With the adaptable nature and physiology of plastic there is no alternative especially as a packaging agent. As plastic sacks store large amount of substances within them keeping their freshness intact maintaining premium hygiene standards. They are even ideal for storage in refrigerators as they do not require too much space and allocate multiple items. Items stored in plastic bags are easy to defrost, unlike other materials labelling is also a simple task and no special tags or writing tools are required.
With the awareness to recycle plastic sheets made to make bags have to adhere to stringent recycle specifications and hygiene constraints. As bags are handy to make them ideal often comfortable handles, zippers and many other features are added for making them easy to carry and avoid any leaks. Some bags are insulated to store hot items, for examples the thin film bags within cup noodle containers which keep the noodles hot while you eat them.
Compared to paper and other alternatives plastics are cost efficient and durable resources and ideal for various purposes. Plastic is made by treating ethylene chemically to generate multiple polymers. Namely there are four different kinds of thin sheets made to create plastic sacks high, medium, low and linear low density polyethylene.
Recycling has become a priority with the depleting natural resources to supply energy. So as saving paper is important, recycling plastic is vital too. As in the creation of plastic bags from propylene depending on the purpose a lot of energy is lost, so if plastic is recycled the lost amount of energy can be recreated. Manufacturing bags which do not meet pre-set norms and are not accepted but with few acceptions if thin, bags are used to package small items or parts of toys should also have preventive warning statements printed as many children die throughout the world by choking and suffocation.
Disposal is the key to promote recycling, at households, industries as well as in industries plastic waste should be collected separately and disposed in garbage bins allotted for recycle materials. As by adopting simple alternations in disposal techniques we all can contribute to save wildlife and nature which is drastically impacted when plastic deposition mixes with water and well as soil sources on which plants and animals survive. Stringent laws and punishments have been levied on manufacturers who produce plastic bags less than 10mm thickness as it is not totally biodegradable and disturbs the environment largely.
