 Post subject: Paper versus Plastic
PostPosted: Tue Nov 20, '07, 9:03 pm 
Some grocery stores and other stores are now banning plastic bags, and using paper bags instead. It wasn't all that long ago that everyone stopped using paper bags and switched to plastic. I don't know if it was for the convenience or something else. I guess the issue relates to biodegradable substances or something. I think plastic was also recyclable or reusable. They both had good, and bad, advantage points, if you think about it.

So, what do you think - should stores use Plastic Bags or Paper Bags? Which do you prefer to use?

lol, I didn't know that, funny, really. I like paper for drawing but I always use plastic bags for anything useful.

:roll: I remember when there was a massive outcry against paper bags because of recyclables. Both are just as good as the other to me, but I just wish the stores would make up their minds one way or the other.

I don't really care. They both have their advantages and their disadvantages. A bag is a bag, sheesh! :roll:

It's all about the environment. People had a problem with paper bags because they weren't recyclable or biodegradable, so plastic became a big push. I guess someone finally realized that a large number of people don't care about recycling, so it doesn't matter if either form is recyclable.

Overall, I'd rather have paper bags that can degrade over time. They hold more stuff, too.
