Should plastic shopping bags be banned: Is there a practical replacement for plastic bags?

  • Lets ban them

    Plastic bags are a threat to the wildlife and small animals! If an animal get caught up with a bag the bag has the power to kill the animal ! As part of the debate we need to stop buying plastic bags and start using our own reusable bags !

  • Other bags are better

    Plastic bags and Cardboard bags are reusable. Yes you could use them for trash bags but same with other bags and they don't rip (because if they rip then you can't use them). So yes plastic bags definitely should be banned. (These words are only covering the last 9 words)

  • Plastic bags should be banned

    I think plastic bag should be banned because they could hurt wild life and mostly if plastic bags get put in dumps they aren't easy burned. About plastic bags hurting wildlife they could get around the necks and also wild animals could chock on plastic bags. So that's my reason

  • There are many alternatives

    Open your eyes. There are so many different bags you can use that are better than a plastic bag. Plastic bags always rip, therefore people get mad but you can buy bags that are way more durable. These bags are a better option because they are ecosystem friendly. A plastic bag can end up in the sea and kill innocent animals, just because you were careless and used a plastic bag. If an animal survives, a fishermen can catch that animal and whoever eats it may die. Also, plastic bags take a long time to degrade and can not be reusable. MADE BY HABIB

  • They Should be Banned

    When people litter plastic bags, they end up in storm drains, which lead into oceans. Sea animals might mistake plastic bags for jellyfish or their food and they could get sick and die. But if they survive, they could get caught and eaten. If you eat them, that could make you sick!

  • They should be banned

    No one wants to see poor creatures dying in the ocean when they mistake plastic bags for food. No one likes seeing plastic bags flying around in a public area or even your house. Some action needs to be taken soon if the world does not want BAGS to be polluting our environment.

  • It is way to harmful for the environment and animals to have to put up with the pollution of plastic bags around the world

    Have you seen some of those beaches that are just surrounded in garbage that has been threw on the ground and just left there? I mean how would you feel if you were an animal and had no absolute clue what this rubbish was and was so hungry that you ate it and then the next second you'd swallowed it and you didn't know what was about to happen to you? Exactly you wouldn't like it would you...

  • Yes They Should Be Banned

    Plastic Bags should be banned because they are REALLY harmful. They aren't just harmful to the animals, they harm the environment. Since they cant be recycled. So they will just end up in the ocean. AND They do decompose after several decades so that means they are in our farm lands!!! SO WE HAVE EATEN PLASTIC BAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yes,plastic bags should be banned

    Plastic bags should be banned because marine animals can get tangled in the plastic.Sometimes a large amount of plastic gets into the ocean and harms the animals.If sea animals swallow the plastic it could seriously damage their bodies.Many animals die from plastic.Fish,sea turtles and seabirds can get caught in the bags or mistake them for food and choke on them.

  • Bags should not be banned here is why

    Plastic Bags should not be banned because stores hand out bags without them how are they going to sell anything in their store.Also people can save their bags there is no need to ban plastic bags .I know they could damage our environment but if people keep them and they don throw their bags on the streets and other places bags are just harmless little things

  • Plastic Bags Can Be Reused

    Plastic bags should not be banned because you can reuse them as garbage bags. My family has a bunch of plastic grocery bags and we reuse them as grocery bags. Even if they have a hole, they can still be reused for reinforcement for another bag. If plastic bags are banned, then people would go to the store with your own bag when the stores provided bags a few days ago. That would mean that you would have to buy your own bag and that uses your own money.

  • Plastic Bags Should Not Be Banned

    Plastic bags should not be banned in any way. I agree that they damage our environment and that they are not bio degradable, but they should not be banned. Some stores have a practice of charging people money for shopping bags, that is a good practice and it motivates people not to use shopping bags.

  • No, They Should Not Be Banned

    They are super durable, and since SOME of them can not decompose, they can be used for a long time. Also, with the introduction of Biodegradable plastics, They can be put in soil and help the soil. All in all, plastics can do lots of things and they are very helpful in our modern, everyday life.

  • They shouldn't be ban

    They shouldn't be baned because what happens when some idiot forgets their bag an they a massively shop and have eg 60 kilos of food then they will have to pay more money to buy even more reusable bags. Spending money that this person could use to go on vacation .

  • Why Would You Do That?

    Plastic bags are one of the main things the retail industry needs, after all they cost less and work better than paper bags (which I don't use for that reason.) If people didn't like them then they wouldn't use them. But hundreds of millions of people use them in the U.S. every day, so why would you ban them? You can't give me one good (human) reason for legislation against the miracle of the bagging industry.

  • Plastic bags should not be banned

    Plastic bags are reusable. It it not practical to bring your own bag all the time. I use canvas bags and they get dirty after a few uses. You have to wash them and that wastes water and soap. Also, you need bags to throw away your garbage. I do not want to spend my own money buying PLASTIC garbage bags!

  • Do not ban plastic bags

    You can buy the bio-degradable plastic bags, also you should just be careful with what you use. It's not any better also when the stores say paper or plastic. You cannot reuse paper bags like you can reuse plastic bags. Even some people use them to put recycle items in.
