Recently many countries have started to ban the plastic bag and started using alternatives such as corn based bags and paper bags.

But are these alternatives better for the environment? The answer is no, the Life Cycle of Corn based bags are far worse than polyethylene and paper is far worse for the environment due to the process and shipping which in turn creates more Co2.

Facts are Facts, Government doesn't know that they are really picking an alternative that is far worse for the planet and have almost no scientific understanding at what their legislative power is doing.

So what?

* A corn husk lying on the ground doesn't pollute the earth, plastic lying on the ground does.

* A burning corn husk doesn't pollute the atmosphere, burning plastic is toxic and pollutes both the atmosphere and your lungs.
