One problem with plastic bags is that they are made from petrochemicals, a non-renewable resource. But the main problem is that they never crash. They may fall apart, or break into smaller pieces, but it actually takes hundreds or even thousands of years for plastics to degrade.paper snow cone cups Traditional plastic bags are not easily biodegradable under any normal circumstances. That being said, plastic bags are often not disposed of properly and pose a significant hazard to wildlife. Tens of thousands of whales, birds, seals and turtles die each year from garbage bags in the marine environment, often mistaking plastic bags for food. Once ingested, the bag cannot be digested or passed through by the animal, so it remains in the digestive tract, preventing food from being digested and ultimately leading to a very slow and painful death.
