    I have yet to hear of a great Sargasso Sea of paper bags floating in the oceans, breaking down into smaller and smaller particles that last for - who knows how long.  Haven't heard of marine life dying because they ate paper bags, either.

    I don't want to see trees turned into paper, but I think what's happening to the marine environment is worse.

    I'm using the reusable bags - which are also plastic, but at least aren't likely to become a meal for a turtle.

    I am become Man, the destroyer of worlds
