Considering that 1000 paper bags stack up to 46
inches and 1000 plastic bags stack up to 3.5 inches, how many trucks
are needed to transport "X" amount of bags? To find out,
play with the animation.
Based on the number of trucks needed, which type of bag requires
the most energy (more trucks, more gas) for transportation?
Plastic bags can take 5-10 years to decompose outdoors
and in a landfill. Paper bags take about a month to decompose outdoors
and a lot longer in a landfill
Transporting paper or plastic
bags uses energy and produces pollution.
