Which bag should you use? – Luka Seamus Wright and Imogen Ellen Napper

From TED Ed.

Explore the environmental impact of three types of bags— plastic, paper, and cloth— to find out how they’re made, used and disposed of.

You’ve filled up your cart and made it to the front of the grocery line when you’re confronted with yet another choice: what kind of bag should you use? It might seem obvious that plastic is bad for the environment, and that a paper bag or a cotton tote would be the better option. But is that really true? Luka Seamus Wright and Imogen Ellen Napper explore the environmental impact of each material.
