More ambitious consumers can feel free to return such items to the product manufacturers to avoid contributing to the local waste stream, and instead, put the burden on the makers to recycle or dispose of the items properly. The Paper and Packaging Industry Waste Management Plan is a formal plan required by the government, to be submitted by the paper and packaging industry (collectively or individually), that makes the producers of paper and packaging material responsible for the end of life of that material. More specifically it is a formal requirement for all paper and packaging producers to submit and outline a proposed roadmap and roll out of infrastructure/systems/processes etc with the aim of reducing waste to landfill, increasing recycling rates as well as generating social and economic benefits from paper and packaging
Soda is sold in round containers for various reasons, the first reason being portability. Sodas are more likely to be carried around and consumed on the go and the shape allows for a comfortable fit in the consumers hand. Furthermore soda is sold in round containers because the round shape holds the pressure from soda or other carbonated drinks better. If soda was carried in any other type of containers it would lose its shape all together. Furthermore, soda is cheaper to store then milk.
In the article Plastic Bag Should be Managed, not Banned, the writer claims “Plastic bags were designed to satisfy a need. Thin plastic can do many things that paper cannot.” There are reusable bags which are ten times preferable than a plastic bag. A reusable bag is capable of ‘satisfying a need.’ Besides plastic bags get ripped so easily and get soggy when it rains. Reusable bags, on the other hand, are versatile and functional. Another example from the text is that the author claims, “The answer to the problems associated with the thin plastic bag use is not a ban, but better management.
The stronger of the attitude element is the behavioural intention to do the action will be more solid and frequent. For example, if an individual feel that he or she as a consumer should react to the “No Plastic Bag Day” campaign, they may practice it during every Saturday by preparing their own eco-friendly bag to supermarket or shopping malls. Similarly, the consumers will choose not to purchase during Saturday but other days if they believe on purchasing in hypermarket and shopping malls without plastic bag providing is inconvenient. McCarty and Shrum (1994) found that the inconvenience of individuals believed recycling is higher than importance of recycling. The perception of inconvenience of recycling activity is greater than influence on their actions.

While plastic bags may provide convenience for customers, there is an overwhelming concern about the effect of them on the health and safety of people, marine life, and the surrounding environment. Since stores are the culprit of a vast majority of the plastic bag pollution, a 5-cent charge for each plastic bag used should be implemented across the country in an effort to decrease the amount of bags used by all customers like it has been in Suffolk County, Long Island. Materials that are biodegradable have the ability to decompose by bacteria or other living organisms found in the environment. A majority of plastic is made of monomers such as ethylene and propylene which are not biodegradable (Geyer et al.). Plastic bags are not biodegradable which means that upon their disposal they are either left in landfills or end up along shorelines of the ocean.
According to Will Rogers, (1879), which says “Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people that they don't like.” (Will Rogers). This means, that there are a lot of people who are using money but that they are not obtain it. Those humans are cheating on other people in order to form relationship with them and have new friends. This money they do not deserve it, they earn it to show other people that they are own the best things, and they are more special than other people. In addition, people are buying many things that they don’t need to use them.
The natural fibre used in the manufacturing process of paper bags and also it’s easily recyclability helps to reflects towards a positive portrait of paper bags (Bazerman et al, (1996)75). In the New Zealand, paper bags are offered as a substitute of plastic shopping bags. Therefore; it can be noticed that a large amount of stores in New Zealand give choice to their customers by showing paper bags for the marketing as well as branding purpose, instead of, the efficiency of resources. As compared to plastic bags, paper bags are often very expensive ( (ACG, 2006 ) (EPCH, 2007). Due to the lack of resources; currently, there is no incentive found for replacing plastic bags with paper bags.
