LDPE is used for plastic bags of all sorts; shopping bags, packaging, rubbish bags and more, it's one of the most popular materials used as it is easy to manufacture, cheap and very light. But this changes if it's collected to million, billion even up to trillion plastic bags.

The task for being sustainable would be finding a solution to create a product or system that could extend the ‘use’ phase longer for the ultimate sustainable product within high market value and valuable product that consumer would extend the ‘use’ phase longer than expected time. This way there's minimal work and effort for 'recycling' and 'reusing'.
