[GRRN] paper or plastic bags...our summary.

1. REDUCE: Use less bags to begin with, if possible...

2. REUSE: Choose bags that you will reuse. Either for groceries again,
garbage, or recyclables. Cloth/plastic/paper...

3. RECYCLE: Choose bags that are easiest to recycle. If you can put them in
your curbside program (usually paper only) get them, if the store accepts them
back get them...

Otherwise...I think we all keep going back and forth on what is
environmentally best. The top 3 guidelines i believe are the best to follow
and I think thats what we've basically summed up on this list.
