Me too Bristol!
Years ago I knew a young woman that spent her time going through land fills looking for discarded gems. Her apartment was like walking into the closet that holds Mardi Gras.
She told me that all the talk about paper bags breaking down quickly compared to plastic is forgetting one factor. When paper bags are buried in garbage they are well preserved for a long time. It is only when exposed to air (and water?) that they break down.
Anyway, this is a fascinating list. I haven't seen all this listed before.
