Plastic bags provide a cleaner, safer option at the grocery store. Many reusable bags contain high levels of lead; microbiologists have found harmful bacteria like E. coli, salmonella and fecal coliform in reusable bags.
Plastic bags are recycled into building materials such as backyard decking, fencing and playground equipment.
Plastic bags make up a tiny fraction (less than 0.5 percent) of the municipal solid waste stream.
