Paper or plastic? How about neither! Use a Mother Earth News tote bag instead. Made entirely from recyclable and reusable material, these sturdy bags are perfect for the next time you’re at the grocery store or farmers market (or just need to carry around your belongings). They can be used again and again, so you should never leave home without one! Each measures 16 inches long by 12 inches wide by 6 inches deep, with reinforced 28-inch handles.
