When we discuss the paper vs plastic bags pros and cons, the first thing that comes under discussion is always the recyclability of the manufacturing material. Even though plastic is recyclable material still only 14 percent of the plastic is recycled. This rate of recyclability is from across the globe of all the plastic waste generated every year. On the other hand, the ratio of recycling of paper is around 65 percent across the globe each year. The high rate of recycling is the major factor behind the popularity and rapid growth of eco friendly retail packaging.
