Plastic vs. Paper bags
I recently attended a conference discussing various aspects of the sustainability. One topic discussed was plastic vs. paper bags. People frequently say paper bags are much more environmentally friendly than plastic bags. Take a look at the process required to produce both plastic bags and paper bags. Both have several advantages and disadvantages. The answer to the debate seems to simply be a matter of opinion. It is interesting to me how people make decisions based on what they have heard rather than what they have learned.
