While the general belief is that paper products are more environmentally friendly because they are made from a renewable source, but the argument that paper is more sustainable than plastic is not so straight forward. Paper. According to the previously cited U.K. study, it takes three reuses of a paper bag to neutralize its environmental impact, relative to plastic. A bag’s impact is more than just its associated carbon emissions: Manufacturing a paper bag requires about four times as much water as a plastic bag. Additionally, the fertilizers and other chemicals used in tree farming and paper manufacturing . The manufacturing of plastics is energy intensive, with 4% of the world’s oil production going into just the processing of plastic. However, the plastic manufacturing process itself actually requires less energy than paper and even bio-plastic. Making paper from trees is dirty work.

  Paper bags require marginally fewer reuses than bags for life to make them more environmentally friendly than single-use plastic bags. On the other hand, paper bags . Plastic is mostly made oil, therefore it’s not easy to recycle. However, some plastics can be recycled and made into new plastics whereas the rest can be incinerated to produce energy. The recyclability of plastic is dependent on its composition and the complexity of polymers involved: for example, the fewer in bottles, the better.   Many restaurants have banned plastic straws due to their harmful effects on the environment, and have switched to paper alternatives instead. But, are paper straws really better for the environment? The answer isn’t as simple as you may think: While it’s true that paper straws aren’t as harmful as plastic straws, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t harmful at all. Over the years, one of the most debated issues is the production and use of plastic versus paper. In the world’s attempt of coming up with more environmentally friendly options, paper has gained popularity especially in the field of packaging and has been a fixture in groceries. Plastic has been made an enemy and some states have even outlawed and banned the material.

Comparatively, plastic bags require less energy to produce. Both paper and plastic bags have to be transported to stores, which requires energy and creates emissions. In this comparison, plastic is preferable because plastic bags are lighter in weight and more compact than paper bags.
