Here is a list of commonly used materials for shopping bags:

Retailers are starting to play a bigger part in the plastic bag recycling movement. At shopping centers, grocers are putting out plastic bag recycling bins or posting signs about how consumers can dispose of their plastic packaging. If you plan to recycle your transparent bag, make sure that it is cleaned out and dry.

Many environmental activists are making it a point to recycle biodegradable plastic bags, because they believe that these carriers are better for the world than paper bags. Nonetheless, paper bags are still popularly used in grocery stores, and are sometimes used in conjunction with plastic bags to hold heavier items.

Plastic makes everyday life easier. PVC, cellophane and polythene, all various types of plastic, help to make packaging that you use everyday. Most everyday products can be found sealed by these plastics. Plastic is clear and can help consumers see products, helping many sectors of the shopping industry with their packaging needs.

Gift wrapping is made easier by plastic. Many custom fruit baskets and fine chocolates are wrapped in plastic. Promotional bags are used by business representatives to hand out gifts which are also made of plastic, and sometimes with the company logo printed across the front.

Tiny, transparent, resealable bags are perfect to pack your food for a picnic or car ride. These little bags keep food fresh and prevent leaking. These bags can also be recyclable and reusable if you are only placing dry snacks inside.

No matter if you are very concerned about the environment or don't spend much time thinking about what kind of bags you should be using, it is hard to deny the impact plastic makes on the world.
