Several aspects influence how environmentally (un)friendly plastic and paper bags are

Are you ever wondering whether using a plastic or paper bag is more environmentally friendly? If yes, thank you, because environmental pollution is a serious issue in many parts of the world, and plastic bags are a major culprit. They can harm animals, cause mangrove forests to suffocate, block drains, and cause floods. They can also hold rainwater, giving mosquitoes a place to breed and increasing the risk of malaria. To prevent these negative effects, paper bags are suggested instead, as they break down much more quickly and effectively than plastic bags. However, other factors also influence how (un)environmentally friendly a bag is:
1. Raw materials
2. Toxic byproducts
3. Decomposition
4. Reusability
5. Recyclability
6. Carbon footprint
In this article, I explain these 6 factors in more detail:

              depend on the lifecycle of the bag; the material used; how it is disposed of; and additional features that the bag may have.
