Paper or Plastic? Which is better for the environment? Neither! Just the simple act of not taking a plastic or paper bag from a store when you checkout can go a long way towards reducing landfills and reducing a company's need to use petroleum and raw timber to make their bags. Why not purchase those reusable totes from your local grocery store? I did and I just love 'em. What used to fill up about 10 of those plastic grocery sacks now fits into 2 totes that aren't even that heavy and can be carried into the house in one trip.
Think about it! Making one small change can make a difference.
Happy Earth Day!
