Plastic shopping bags are commonly used by consumers around the world to carry groceries and other items. However, these bags are also a major contributor to plastic pollution and can take hundreds of years to decompose in landfills. Actually plastic shopping bags are recyclable. The polyethylene used in most traditional plastic shopping bags is either low-density or high-density. Heavy-duty plastic shopping bags are suitable for reuse as reusable shopping bags. Lighter weight bags are often reused as trash bags or to pick up pet feces. Some modern bags are made of vegetable-based bioplastics, which can decay organically and prevent a build-up of toxic plastic bags in landfills and the natural environment. Bags can also be made from degradable polyethylene film or from polylactic acid (PLA), a biodegradable polymer derived from lactic acid. All types of plastic shopping bag can be recycled where effective collection schemes exist. Shredding plastic shopping bags is the necessary step to help recycle and repurpose these bags.
A plastic shopping bag shredder is a machine that is specifically designed to shred plastic bags into small pieces.

The shredded pieces can be used for various purposes, such as the production of new plastic products or even as a raw material for fuel. Instead of ending up in landfills, the shredded plastic can be recycled and repurposed, reducing the need for new plastic production.
