You’ve filled up your cart and made it to the front of the grocery line when you’re confronted with yet another choice: what kind of waterproof shopping bag should you use? 


If you’ve seen the images of plastic waterproof shopping bags strewn across the ocean, it might seem obvious that plastic is bad for the environment. Surely, a paper bag or a non-woven bag would be the better option.


But is that really true?

Each of these three materials has a unique environmental impact that’s determined by its carbon footprint, its potential to be reused and recycled, and its degradability. So, to get the full story on these waterproof shopping bags, we need to look at how they’re made and how they’re used.


plastic waterproof shopping bags

Plastic waterproof shopping bags are packaging materials made of polyolefin as the main raw material and appropriately adding other substances. The main products include four categories: low density polyethylene or high pressure polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene or low pressure polyethylene (HDPE), linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and metallocene polyethylene (mLLDPE).


In order to reduce its cost, most companies add about 30% calcium carbonate to make filled plastic shopping bags. Such plastic waterproof shopping bags do not emit toxic gases when incinerated in landfills.


Considering the cost and other issues, most of the plastic bags on the market are ordinary non-degradable plastic bags, which will pollute the environment. In the long run, degradable materials are the development trend.

Non-woven waterproof shopping bags


Commonly used non-woven raw materials are polypropylene (PP for short, commonly known as polypropylene) or polyethylene terephthalate.


In terms of specific cost performance, the strength of non-woven waterproof shopping bags under the same conditions is not as good as that of plastic bags. Its price is several times higher than that of plastic bags. It should be mentioned that non-woven shopping bags made of two or more materials are more difficult to recycle than ordinary plastic shopping bags.


At present, there are also many non-woven waterproof shopping bags in supermarket shopping, because they are stronger and cheaper than conventional plastic bags.


Paper waterproof shopping bags

There are also many popular paper bags on the market. It's cheap, but it also has many drawbacks.

First of all, the raw material for making paper is mainly wood, which is the biggest waste of environmental resources.

Second, the process of making paper creates a lot of water pollution. Therefore, using a large number of paper bags is the biggest waste of environmental resources.


In short, there are many choices of materials for shopping bags. If you are an end consumer, it is recommended that you buy waterproof shopping bags that are degradable and do not pollute the environment.
