It’s definitely the lesser of two evils:

Plastic clutters up the environment, killing and injuring wildlife

Paper is biodegradable and adds to greenhouse gases.

Bringing your own reusable bag mitigates these two but increases risk of food borne illness.

Plastic can be burned and turned into useful energy. Paper is made from cutting down massive numbers of trees.
@hippyjoe1955 Reality shown doesn't need evidence. The one objecting to what most call common truth is the one needs to provide references. But if you want to get stuck in the mud of conspiracy

@thewindupbirdchronicles Reality is evidence. If you can't produce the evidence there is no reality. What colour is the sky in your world?
@hippyjoe1955 Dipper in colour, but I'm unable to know until you tell me... goof

It's most always the lesser of two "evils", when wishing to do the [i]least[/i] harm. I choose the reusable bag option, above paper or plastic.

It is primarily raw meat and sometimes unwashed produce, that increases the risk of food born illness when using one's own bags while grocery shopping. That can be easily remedied by using either a few plastic bags as opposed to 15 or [b]50[/b], or simply washing or otherwise 'sanitizing' whatever kind of reusable bags a person chooses.

@MasterLee Thats true, while plastic more melts which is more a product of heat.

The last time someone asked me "paper or plastic," they were asking if I wanted to pay with "cash or credit."
