Although I agree that plastic bags are NOT good for our environment, but it is now a part of own every day lives are it will be impossible to ban it completely. If this does happen it might cause secret use of plastic bags and will cause bad effects overall. I believe instead we should strongly discourage the use of plastic bags and then invent, contrive and provide more options and substitutes. Also it will cost the government too much which will be a lot more help elsewhere!

according to research, there is a part of the ocean that is as big as Texas's, and when animals swim in there they get all raped up in plastic and can die. they can also eat it and die. for example, turtles get raped up in the plastic soda rigs and can't get out at all.

The point of your previous argument is to show how much plastic bags hurt animals but then our priority is to find a way to reuse plastic bags or to destroy them safely. If we ban plastic bags it will only help in a short time period and soon another type of bag which might cause bad effects on the environment in another way.

It is an good option but is not very popular as it is not easy to remember to bring so if scientists can either find a new biodegradable and cheap bag material or find a way to destroy plastic bags without hurting the environment it would be great.

we should ban plastic bags is because plastic is becoming litter. if you think about it, not everyone recycles there plastic bags and they become litter on our beaches and streets.

should plastic bags be banned? ----- DebateWise

In the previous argument, you said 'not everyone recycles their plastic bags' alluding to the fact that if everyone does recycle then the problem shall be solved. Environmental cautiousness is on a new high and if we keep promoting the importance of reusing plastic bags then there will be no need to ban plastic bags, which in my first argument I stated why a ban isn't the best option!
