  • Plastic surgery should be banned. It is wrong!

    In such a beauty obsessed society plastic surgery is becoming vastly popular. I think changing the way you look is changing the way you are. Some people need plastic surgery if they have some kind of disfigurement but those who do it to look 'beautiful' is wrong. Accepting the way you are and focusing more on the inner beauty is the way people should look at you, not by appearance

  • Plastics should not be band

    Susan Freinkel says that Plastics aren’t the problem, you are. Susan argues that plastic could actually help save the environment.• It takes less energy to produce plastics than many other materials and while producing plastics we are creating more jobs for Utahans and it replaces materials that are “sustainable” only because they come from destroying animals or trees giving Utah more nature to produce oxygen. It’s not plastic’s fault that we compulsively toss out bags and bottles after a single use. That’s dumb, wasteful behavior no matter the material. All we have to do is start appreciating it and stop throwing it away. Maeve Rich said that “People throughout the world have been recycling for thousands of years. It hasn't always looked the same as it does now, with curbside pick-ups and drop off stations, but it has been done longer than many people realize.” Utahans just need to make it a habit and learn the difference between Green and Blue. He also said “Recycling seems to be everywhere these days. Supermarkets offer reusable bags and recycling bins in their doorways. "Made from recyclable materials" is on many products. Still, goods that could be reused or recycled are tossed in the trash.” Although it is impossible to get an exact figure, it's estimated that the US recycles at a rate of 77%. That's not bad, especially when compared with just 7% in Australia. It could be better though, like Ireland, which recycles at a rate of 90%.” That 77% recycling rate in the US can be further broken down by region. The eastern part of the US leads the country at 88% with the western part coming in just behind at 86%. The Midwest recycles at a rate of 70%, while 68% of the south recycles.”

  • Our standard of living cannot be maintained without plastic.

    To Jezzkay: this is just PLASTIC, not PLASTIC SURGERY. Plastic does too much good in the world today. It is in innumerable objects. Environmental issues can be addressed through proper recycling and disposal, although this needs to happen at a higher rate. As for the harm plastics do to the body, it SEEMS TO BE negligible compared to the benefits of its convenience. The day plastics are banned would be a sad day.

  • Just Raid Dumps for Plastic and Recycle It; It would create jobs

    We have a jobs problem in America. And plastic is bad for the environment. But here's the thing, plastic can be recycled and isn't bad then. So kill two birds with one stone, let's hire teams of people to raid dumps for recyclable materials including plastic and take it to processing centers to be recycled. Problem solved.

  • What is this

    Seriously? Does this even need an explanation? What is this Nazi agenda? Anyways, the B O P is on the Affirmative so I have nothing to say right now. The affirmative must fulfill the Burden of Proof before I can say anything. Banning plastic - the whole notion is ridiculous.

  • Plastic is everywhere

    Although it is harmful to the environment, we can't just eliminate it and expect no repercussions. Plastic covers millions of goods. It is a large industry that supplies many jobs. We should work on alternatives, but a ban against plastic should not come until we actually have thought of other ways to package goods like plastic can. Instead of banning plastic, why don't we increase recycling?
