There are many ways to bring stuff. One of them is by using plastic bags. Everybody uses it. It’s free because if you are shopping for groceries or other stuffs, you will always get plastic bags to bring them.
Of course, there is no difference in Indonesia. We use plastic bags too here. (See this post to know more about it)
But do you know that there is a black plastic bag? It is just an ordinary plastic bag but it is entirely more dangerous than the ordinary ones.
Why is it dangerous?
First, it is a recycled product. You won’t know what it was recycled from. Factory waste or other dangerous chemical residue, perhaps?
Second, plastic bags used for trash like in the picture above might be recycled again to be used, or maybe just washed.
Third, the amount of people who know about this is too low.
Crazy, isn’t it? What’s crazier, though, is that the black plastic bags are often used for wrapping fries.
Usually, the fries are wrapped with paper to absorb the oily surface of the fries, but of course, that doesn’t make it any safer and healthier.
So, never ever use black plastic bags. Either use plastic bags with other colors, or don’t use it at all.
