The trees they cut to make paper products were planted for that purpose, then replanted. I think it's a better system than plastic personally.

I would also go with paper as it is easy to recycle, and it won't fill up our landfills. Other advantage of paper over plastic is that it is biodegradable which is really good for our environment and is made from reusable resource trees.

Paper is better. You see plastic bags wrapped up in trees....they will stay there. Paper bags along the road will decompose.
