The question of paper or plastic is one that is heard at grocery stores across the nation. When asking yourself which one is the green choice, the answer is that neither are very green. Both paper and plastic bags have a hard time decomposing in an oxygenless landfill. Recycling both is an option, but there is an even greener way.
There are many places that you can get reusable grocery bags. One is Reusablebags.com . Also, many grocers sell cloth bags at a low price. Some even give you a credit of a nickel per bag since you are saving them money on bags too.
