Many documentaries have been released on the topic of plastic bags and the impact on the environment. This short 12 minute documentary by Christine Giordano. This short film hits the main topics of the problems with plastic bags and their detrimental effects on the environment, animals, and the economics of waste containment. One topic that is not well known to the public is the problem with paper bags. I myself once thought that choosing paper over plastic was leaps and bounds better than choosing plastic, however this video demonstrates how unsustainable paper bags are. If you don't want to dedicate the time to watch a full featured documentary, watch this short film and begin to think differently about how you bag. (See link below)
