Plastic shopping bags are a kind of plastic carrier bag made from different types of plastic and used as shopping bags. In common use since the early 1960s, these bags can be described as single-use shopping bags, referring to simply carrying things from a shop to your home. In some countries these plastic carrier bags are called supermarket bags as well, for the reason that they're used almost exclusively for shopping. The plastic carrier bag is one of the most popular, convenient, and functional shopping bags on the market today. They may be used for a number of reasons including carrying grocery products, moving heavy goods from one place to another, carrying clothes, or groceries and other groceries.
