Do clear plastic bags cost more than traditional black plastic bags?
No. Both clear plastic and black plastic garbage bags are manufactured from the same type of plastic resin – typically linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). The only difference between clear and coloured bags is the dyes which have been added to colour bags. From a sales perspective, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price should be equal (if not less) between the two products.
