While they are different types of plastics, plastic bags are plastic #1 (PETE) and water bottles are plastic #2 (HDPE), there is more plastic in a water bottle. You can tell this because the plastic bottle weighs more.
Oops, I made a mistake with my plastic numbers. Bottles are made out of #1 and #2 and bags can be made out of #2 and #4 (#4 is LLDPE)but the conclusion still stands, there is more plastic in a plastic bottle.
Also, there are great alternatives to plastic bags and plastic bottles. Instead of using plastic bottles, metal water bottles are much more eco-friendly. Also, when grocery shopping, taking eco-frindly reusable bags is a good alternative to wasting plastic bags.
