Paper or Plastic?
Thanks to my friend at Frankly Green for this great link at msnbc.com to help answer that age old question:
"Paper or Plastic?"
It is a little long to watch, but it's informative.
If you don't want to watch it...I'll give you the punchline: Take reusable bags. (Keep them in the back of your car so you always have them with you) If you are caught without a reusable bag...make your decision on which paper or plastic bag you would reuse for another task. It's not simple, but if we all used reusable bags it would go a long way toward reducing our "carbon footprint".
