Back in the 70s it was stated that using plastic bags were more Eco friendly than paper bags. That if you really wanted to "save the earth", switch to plastic. That was a big oops! "


Depends...if you use paper bags, you cut down Donna's old growth forests to get the wood to make the paper

It takes LESS energy to make plastic bags. Plus, they are 100% recyclable.
