Is it more eco friendly to make a plastic grocery bag or a paper one?

    This has been a topic of much debate both scientifically and ethically. My personal answer to this question is neither-bring your own bag (byob!). Paper bags consume a significant amount of trees. Also, from start to finish the bags use lots of chemicals, water, electricity, and fossil fuels. Plastic bags are a significant source of litter and use lots of natural gas. While both bags can be reused for different uses, ultimately neither is more eco friendly than the other. A blog post entitled plastic vs paper does a great job presenting various facts and figures and may help you in dediding which is better. Good Luck!
