Last Friday, Brian Lehrer at WNYC invited me on his show to talk about age-old question that consumers face at the check-out counter: Paper? Plastic? Neither?

Well, the best thing is to bring reusable canvas bags with you to the grocery store, but unless you're more prepared than an Eagle Scout you'll still have to choose between the other two from time to time. The answer usually comes down to which is easier to reuse and recycle in your community.

Check it out, and go read the excellent listener comments on Brian's blog, too!
