15 Bad Packaging Examples That’ll Make You Cry For the Environment
Plastic bags significantly impact our environment, with Americans using an average of 365 plastic bags per year per person (compared to Denmark populations who use 4 plastic bags per year per person). Yet there are eco-friendly alternatives such as organic fabrics for reusable bags. You’ll see a variety of organic fabrics are on the market including hemp, organic or recycled cotton, tapioca, palm leaves, and many more. All of these materials are biodegradable, taking ~100 days to decompose compared to the 10,000 years it takes for a plastic bag to degrade. There are also many other uses for these fabrics besides bags, such as clothing.
