Frequently Asked Questions

Why is paper not a better option?

Paper does not break down faster than plastic, takes 300% more energy to manufacture than plastic, and it uses 10% more energy to recycle than plastic.

It is also a little-known fact that plastic bags were invented to save the planet, according to the son of Swedish engineer Sten Gustaf Thulin. Thulin created plastic bags, as we know them today, in 1959. The bags were developed as an alternative to paper bags, which were considered bad for the environment because they resulted in forests being chopped down. More than 60 years later, estimates suggest that about 42 million trees are felled daily to make paper and other products. To produce 1 ton of coated, higher-end virgin magazine paper (as used for high-end magazines), studies estimate that more than 15 trees are cut down. Paper is not better. Plastic bags were not meant to be single-use.
