What resources are used in producing a canvas bag? Is it a lot more than plastic and paper?

    It depends on the bag, but most canvas bags are made of unbleached or organic cotton. The resources entailed are just the cotton (or denim, or whatever type of canvas you prefer) and the sewing labor. Since most canvas bags have a relatively simple design, the work is quick for machines and humans. And since canvas bags are reusable for much longer than paper or plastic bags, canvas bag-users use far fewer resources total than people who keep using new plastic and paper bags.
