There was nothing wrong with the intention or invention but it didn’t work well for the planet after all. nor would paper bags. Anything use n throw is unaffordable in terms of environmental costs. Garbage. which is what 90% of the plastic bags used today are. Most single-use plastic bags cannot be recycled and the metrics they are using assume recycled plastic bags, which as I just mentioned is not accurate. Most paper bags are treated as single-use as well. Cotton bags, while more energy consumptive to build is far more durable and reusable.
