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

Plastic bags are seldom recycled. Many end up in the ocean as part of large rafts of garbage or individually killing sea life or slowly degrading in landfills. IMO we should be more conservative about wasting oil on bags...landfills are bursting with big plastic garbage bags that contain medium plastic kitchen garbage bags that contain smaller plastic shopping bags and ziplock or other very small bags.
