Single use plastic bags are only made for the “convenience” but just because they’re convenient at the moment they aren’t in the long run. Plastics like these don’t biodegrade and if they do we won’t be around to see it. Imagine all the single use plastic bags that accumulate throughout just a year of our lifetime, it’s a lot. We were doing just fine with out reusable bags so why go back to old unconventional methods if we don’t have to? 

Also these bags create problems for our oceans and the creature that live in the oceans. For example sea turtles aren’t able to differentiate between a jellyfish and a plastic bag thus in the end killing them. We already have enough problems with climate change let’s not add anymore variables to the equation.
