Waste of paper

Dear Editor:Everyone is concerned about plastic bags - well why don't they do something about all the paper wasted at the grocery store? I went to Ralph's today and bought two items. When I got home I took out the receipt and measured it: 15 inches. Fifteen inches for two items (they measured 4 inches). The other 11 inches was used to promote things in the store. That is really a major waste. We have so many really important things to worry about but plastic bags seems to be the major concern for now. What next? -- Doris Hannon, Downey
