A plastic bag, polybag, or pouch is a flexible, thin plastic film, nonwoven fabric, or plastic textile container. Foods, produce, powders, ice, periodicals, chemicals, and garbage are all contained and transported in plastic bags. It’s a frequent type of container.

The seams of most plastic bags are heat-sealed, although some are bonded with adhesives or sewn.

Many nations are enacting legislation to phase out lightweight plastic bags, owing to the fact that plastic never fully degrades, resulting in long-term plastic pollution and environmental consequences. Around 1 to 5 trillion plastic bags are used and thrown each year globally. Plastic bags have a 12-minute lifespan from the point of sale to the destination. In 2014, the United States of America used around 320 bags per capita.

There are a variety of design options and features to choose from. Some bags include gussets to allow for a larger volume of contents, unique stand-up pouches that can stand up on a shelf or in the refrigerator, and others that are easy to open or close. Some have handles carved into them or attached to them.

A number of plastic films can be used to make bags. The most prevalent is polyethylene (LDPE, LLDPE, and so forth). When physical characteristics are required, other forms like laminates and co-extrusions can be employed. Fossil fuels are largely used to make plastics for single-use bags. The 3rd of July is International Plastic Bag Free Day.

Plastic bags utilize less material than boxes, cartons, or jars and are thus sometimes referred to as “reduced or minimized packing.” Oil-based plastics, especially when recycled, have a better life-cycle analysis than biodegradable plastics, according to Germany’s Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, which published a report in June 2009. “The present bags manufactured from bioplastics have less favorable environmental effect profiles than the other materials evaluated,” they continued, claiming that this is attributable to the raw-material manufacturing method.


Plastic bags may be suitable for plastic recycling, depending on their structure. They can be burned for waste-to-energy conversion in suitable facilities. In hygienic landfills, they are stable and benign. Plastic bags, on the other hand, may cause unattractive litter and damage some species of animals if they are not properly disposed of. Due to their inability to be separated, plastic bags have a low recycling rate. The contamination of the substance occurs when mixed materials are recycled. Plastic bags, on the other hand, are reused 1.6 times before being discarded.

Carrying handles, hanging holes, tape attachments, and security measures are all available on bags. Some bags include features that allow for controlled and simple opening. For kitchen bags purchased empty and for some items, reclosable features such as press-to-seal zipper strips are popular. Some bags are tamper-evident, such as those where the press-to-reseal function is only accessible once the perforated outer seal has been ripped away.

Sealable frozen meals, including full dinners, are frequently packaged in boil-in-bags. To resist the temperatures of boiling water, the bags are generally made of strong heat-sealed nylon or polyester. Some bags are perforated or porous to allow hot water to reach the food, such as rice or noodles. The single greatest source of single-use plastic bags in supermarkets.
