Paper or plastic?
Paper is better than plastic, because it is biodegradable, right?
Wrong. Most stores will reuse plastic bags, even giving you a 5-cent/bag rebate. Also, you can use plastic bags in your home as garbage bags, thus reducing the need to buy them. You can use paper bags to recycle newspapers, but you probably buy more bags than you can use up in this fashion.
