Paper or Plastic?
Upon leaving Whole Foods today I realized I only had one of my reusable bags with me. I did not feel I could carry everything else like Ed Begley Jr. on "Living with Ed" so when they asked paper or plastic I asked "which is really better?" always curious of their response. Another opportunity for learning knocked. The cashier explaining that if you live near the water it is always best to use paper. She went on to explain that paper is less likely to end up in the water harming wildlife then plastic. It is always important to recycle paper and plastic bags but packing your own is best for the environment and reduces clutter in the process.
