    fine but its only a name

    well, actually, plastic is better for the environment than wood, so it is a hybrid in the sense of "going green"

    good one

    We went from describing the joys of hunting to an argument over whether wood or plastic is better for the environment through recycling. Welcome to the Internet!

    not really, wood is natural and plastic is extremely horrible to the environment so it is the exact opposite

    yes, but what I was refering to was the fact that it doesnt decompose

    ...But plastic can recycle. It doesn't have to decompose. Wood can't recycle. It can only decompose.

    Why would you need to recycle wood? It's far better for the environment to make compost out of it to help make more wood.

    I'm not disagreeing with what you are saying, I was just saying in my original comment that, if you dont recycle it (which unfortunately lots of people dont do), plastic is horrible to the environment because it doesnt decompose

    oh, alright. yes, people need to recycle more.

    Yes, but wood is organic and will decompose and make good compost.

    They both have pros and cons

    yeah cause you have to cut down trees to get wood

    Actually no, Rifles are powered by air or explosives, crossboww are powerrd by tension.
