Plastic bags are used by one and all but what we don't realize is that the overuse of polythene bags pose a great danger in our lives. They are one of the modern conveniences that we seem to be unable to do without. The negative impacts of these bags include pollution, killing the wildlife and harming the precious resources of the planet. Most of these polythene bags pose a great risk as they are dumped into landfills which therefore affects the environment, and as more and more bags are dumped into the landfills it causes pollution which litters the water bodies and causes a bad impact on human life and animal kingdom. Many animals ingest these bags by mistake and which leads to death therefore damaging the wildlife system. It disturbs the ecosystem.
