Paper or Plastic?

Just thought I'd make a poll that is just as meaningless as the bevy of other polls around here.

Should also add "both".
It our local stores, if you ask for paper, you get both.
Just my two cents on this meaningless poll.

You fail at making useless polls. I will make a superior poll in a second.

I would have to say plastic. This is because the handles on the paper bags easily get ripped off. They are not strong enough compared to the elastic strength of a plastic bag IMHO.

I prefer paper because I can reuse it if I meet a butterface.

When I worked at a grocery store in High School, I was told to ask "Is plastic okay?" Instead of "paper of plastic". That was 12 years ago. Plastic bags are cheaper, and it was thought that if we ask "is plastic okay" that it would cut down on paper bag consumption. These days, they don't even ask here in Houston, they just stick in plastic. And cheap places like Walmart don't even carry paper.

I always try to get paper though because I heard its better for the environment. It also comes in handy for keeping things (i don't throw them away).

Paper! I can generally get more in a paper bag thus having less bags to carry!

PLASTIC

I have a small kitchen with no place to put a trash bin so I put two screws in the side of the cabinet and hang plastic bags there until they are filled and then change them.

It works very well for me.

We recycle all our plastic that we don't use.







So there.
