FW: Plastic vs. Paper Grocery Bags
The answer to your question is definately...cloth. Reusable.
I expect the next best option is the one that you will reuse for some
purpose, in such a way that if you didn't have that used bag you would have
purchased some new material. e.g. in this area for residential pick-up of
recyclables you must put the materials in blue plastic bags.

Subject: Plastic vs. Paper Grocery Bags
I'm trying to find some unbiased information on which is more
environmentally friendly to use: plastic or paper grocery bags. I've
searched the archives and didn't come up with much. I also searched the
internet and found some information that tends to support one over the
other (put out by manufacturers or special interest groups); however, I
haven't been able to locate anything that resembles a true study performed
by/for a disinterested third party. Does anyone know if such a study
exists? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
