ploythene bags should not be thrown along with garbage.why?

Polythene bags should not be thrown along with garbage because

1) They are non-biodegradable.

2) Many stray animals, especially cows feed on garbage. In the process of eating the food waste they may swallow polythene bags. The plastic material chokes the respiratory system of these animals, or forms a lining in their stomachs and can be the cause of their death.

3) The polythene bags also result in clogging of drains.
