Going GREEN Trends. Cotton bags, better than plastic?

Updated on March 27, 2011

Plastic verses cotton, best bags for the environment?

I recently heard about a study done in the U.K. and was very intrigued to hear that our old friend the plastic bag may not be such a bad guy after all. But rather than re-list the details, I would like people to read the article and learn about the flaws we should all know about before we go out and buy another reusable bag.

There is obviously a strong desire to improve our nasty habits that damage our environment and its beauty, but the is also another very strong force out there, greed. If someone can scare you into buying something they are selling, most often than not, they will. Chances are they don't even care about the cause in most cases, that's why the rich get richer and poor give them our money.

I wonder how much profit has been generated from our reusable bags in the past couple years? And who benefited from it? And who came up with the idea, and if it was actually studied as to the impact creating such bags would have on the environment as well as their easy to return to the soil from once they came?

It's plastic for me. We reuse our plastic bags quick frequently. And we have no problem paying the extra $0.05 per bag at the store to lessen our negative impact on the environment.
