When it comes to production, paper bags require 2.2 times more energy and 4.7 times more water to manufacture than plastic bags. Paper bags are also nine times heavier, meaning they use more energy to transport.
Plastic bags, on the other hand, can have long-lasting impacts on our ecosystem, as it takes them up to 1,000 years to decompose after production, and are produced using crude oil, a nonrenewable resource that produces significant levels of greenhouse gases.
This means that the best alternative to paper OR plastic is bringing reusable bags with you to the store!
