On the scale of discarded evil, paper doesn’t rank of there with inorganic, slow-to-degrade junk.
But it can lead the eyesore category since there’s so &*%^$#@ much of it blowing or floating around.
Of course, not all paper is created equal. Some is quick to biodegrade (newsprint) while still more is coated stock that isn’t so fast to go away. Luckily, much of it can and should be recycled which is what’s done with the Chick-Fil-A – Hardee’s – Wendy’s and other fast food bags, newspaper, paper napkins, French fry boxes and so on.
