    Plastic versus Paper – A Change in My Opinion

    By Mark Schauss | October 2, 2008

    In my book, Acheiving Victory Over a Toxic World, I wrote about the difference in the resources used by a plastic and a paper grocery bag was minimal. Plastic may actually use a wee bit less than paper in terms of energy and other limited resources. Since then one thing keeps coming to my attention that has caused me to change my mind and that is the enormous continent of plastic that sits in the Pacific Ocean with lesser masses being found in all oceans around the world.

    While using Stumble, I came across this website/presentation¬†that everyone should see.¬† After looking at it, there is no choice between paper or plastic. It has to be neither, I bought my own reusable bag. If you forgot yours, go for paper as a last resort. The world’s animals and fish will thank you.
