Not the best choice.

I prefer mootools. Oh well, it's an MS decision after all! :D

Plastic bag campaign falls apart at the seams

Plastic is not the problem

You have to look at the "total cost of ownership" of the plastic bag. It is much less than that of the bio-degradable "eco" paper bag. The energy/resources used to create a plastic bag are much less per bag IF it gets re-used.

Plastic bags last longer and can be easily re-used. The trouble is we DON'T re-use them - the majority get thrown away. Paper bags that are made to throw away because they bio-degrade use much more energy/resources per bag.

The answer is to reuse all those plastic bags not "burn them at the bottom of the garden". We have enough to last generations!
