Paper or Plastic, The Argument Goes On

Well revelations come in many forms and this one happens to come in the form of a website!  Just when I thought I hated plastic (and I really do), I just learned that using plastic bags is better than paper but only if you ‘REUSE’ them… (much better than recycling).  Check out this website www.savetheplasticbag.com.  It will give you a zillion reasons why plastic can be better than paper when you’re checking out of the grocery store.  It even has a section about how Whole Foods Gets It Wrong because it has banned plastic bags.  The only problem with this whole idea, conceptually, is that I don’t have confidence that people won’t let them blow in the wind, gather on the side of the road or throw them away.  But maybe we can change behavior if we raise awareness.  This is a darn good start.  Www.savetheplasticbag.com
