You would think they could settle on something themselves, but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" Every time I check out, just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I never remember to take them with me.

Another UK study, which only considered the climate change impact, found that to have lower global warming potential than single-use plastic bags:
...
non-woven polypropylene bags should be used 11 times
cotton bags should be used 131 times.

It takes land, water, and energy (to plow, plant, reap) the cotton, and energy to make the raw cotton into bags.
