"Mom, I saw on television that we have to reduce the use of plastic bags. What is the reason for that? Is plastic bad? "

"I don't know, Luh. What’s more, I use plastics bags every day too and until now there haven’t been any problems. Maybe the material used to make plastic has become hard to get, Luh,” her mother said.
