paperPaper or plastic?
The environmentalist in me wants to say “paper”, of course –or- arrive at the checkout line sporting one of those re-usable synthetic-material bags decorated with an image of a panda or something…but then I wonder, if we don’t want those cheap plastic grocery bags ending up in our landfills, why then do we buy larger capacity GLAD or HEFTY kitchen garbage bags to stuff with our daily rubbish?
