What is the best answer to 'paper or plastic?'?

According to me, Paper is better than plastics because papers are more ecofriendly than plastics but in some cases, plastics are more useful than paper.
Paper is better because they are biodegradable and can be decomposed and recycle easily Whereas plastics has its own important uses but the main disadvantage of plastic is that they are non biodegradable and cannot be decomposed by the microorganisms.
But this problem can be removed if we will recycle and reuse these plastic materials properly and don't throw in soil and water bodies. Throwing them can cause extreme harm to plants, animals and also our environment.

Is it dangerous to put food directly into a reusable shopping bag?

It depends what the bag is made of, some are made of plastic and I wouldn\'t recommend that you put your fresh produce directly into the bag. Also we tend to not think about washing bags so these reusable grocery bags can be breeding grounds for bacteria. I recommend watching this short video about bacteria in shopping bags.

Is there a reusable bag for a Kirby Gsix

Kirby salesmen have told many that the new polypropalene bags are reusable, however they from what i can tell are not. sure you can empty them like you could any other bag but filtration is going to be greatly reduced as well as air flow which will greatly reduce cleaning ability as kirbys need air flow to work properly. also reusing these bags could possibly damage machine since it is having to work harder.
