Should paper bags be banned from grocery stores?

Report as

why? better to ban plastic. it is a common misconception that making paper reduces the number of trees. in fact, the paper companies have increased the number of trees. they dont just go into the woods and randomly cut down trees. they grow their own trees specifically for paper. also, recycling wastes more resources than it outputs. it is a big fat scam.

How does recycling waste more than it outputs? Surely it's better than to have the entire products you dispose in the waste? Unless they just burn re stuff and be done with it?

Unlike most plastic bags, they are much better because they are easily biodegradable.

Yes, to save trees. Instead of that use cloth bags(which customer has to carry).

No paper bags are better than plastic plastic bags are blown in the wind throwing up again fences in trees and just a dar nuisance. Paper bags can be used from recycled products instead of just cutting down trees like everyone says.

Plastic bags end up on the road and oceans. Creatures get their fins stuck in them. They're worse for the environment.

Paper or carrying reusable tote is the only way to go.
