Is there more waste from plastic grocery bags or paper?

    Although waste is created by human tendencies, the fact remains that plastic bags are non-biodegradable. Both plastic and paper are recyclable, and if you remember to recycle them both, then the waste is relatively similar. However, if thrown out, while the plastic bags will sit in the landfill, poison the ground while not biodegrading, the paper bags will eventually biodegrade and be reintegrating into the earth.

    I hope this helped!

    Definitely plastic bags as it currently stands, though there are an increasing number of stores that offer recycling bins for plastic bags.  Once they are reused and recycled then the waste will go down, but between the two plastic outweighs paper.
