Why don't we use environment friendly bags?

    Burning and degrading of poly bags are too harmful to the environment. Still, we are using poly bags. Why don't we go with environment-friendly Jiffy Paper Padded bags?

    Welcome to PF!

    This sub-forum is meant to introduce yourself to the community, not to post questions, which we have the others for.

    Beside that, I don't think your question can be reasonably answered. Why behave people like they do? Depending on your personal system of values, this list is probably rather long. Of course there are several economic reasons: cheap, low weight, tear-proof, and some less logical. But I don't think a debate on this issue will lead somewhere.
