Hey Daniel, Whole Foods paper bags are made out of 100 percent recycled content, so they aren't cutting down new trees. Hopefully, everyone will bring their own bags and they won't need paper either.

Two years late on this topic but now the City of Toronto has levied a ban on plastic by charging a nickel for every bag. I gave yet to find paper in any grocery yet. Most of us now carry a bag in our purses or have a couple stashed in the trunk. .But we have to be careful to keep these clean.
