“Oh, save the planet, don’t use the environmentally unfriendly plastic bags, use these re-usable green bags instead.”
Which are also made of plastic. They’re non woven polypropylene. According to the wiki article, the NWPP bags can be recycled. So can the plastic bags that they’re meant to be replacing. I don’t forsee anyone thinking that they can chuck their worn out green bags into the recycling bin though. As far as I’m concerned, we’re replacing one plastic bag with another.
