2. These are easy to use.  (Much stronger than paper bags and hold much more weight)

3. These are available in bulk easily.

4. These are convenient to store in bulk. (Requires less space to store than paper bags)

5. No cutting of trees is required to make plastic bags

6. Paper bags are less prone to tearing.

7. Plastic bags require 40% less energy to produce than paper bags.

8. These can be rinsed out and reused instantly.
