Plastic vs. Paper Grocery Bags



There's an article in Feb `99 Waste Age magazine that has some facts and
figures that you might find interesting.  For instance, it mentions that it
takes 7 truckloads of paper bags to equal one truckload of plastic bags, and
the weight of 1000 plastic bags is 15 lbs compared to 140 lbs for paper
bags.
