  • They need to be banned

    They need to be banned because they are a weapon and a threat to wild life and if Little kids gets hold of them they could eat them and die. Sea animals can also gets caught in the plastic substance and be dragged along with no power at all, They need to be banned

  • Yea they should be banned

    They should be banned because they can do harmful very harmful things to wild life and on top of that if little kids get a hold of them it can kill them they are even used as murder weapons they are even dangerous to the environment they need to get out of are town!!

  • Plastic Bags = Death to Marine Life

    Seriously!? Plastics are terrible for the environment. Nothing about "plastics" saves the environment in any way. There is enough plastic in the ocean to fill North America. Marine life get confused and think plastic floating in the ocean is food and eat it and die. We can always plant trees and use paper but we cant take plastic out of the ocean. Once we take away plastic bags it will get our foot in the door to ban water bottles and so on.

  • Plastic bags SHOULD be banned

    Plastic bags should be banned for so many reasons. First of all of the plastic leads to the oceans which pollutes it and kills many fish and reefs. Plastic absolutely destroys the world more than it is already destroyed. Not only does it destroy the ocean, but it also destroys land. Forests, plains, streets, parks you name it! Plastic bags take away the beauty from the world. The worst thing about plastic is that it is impossible to clean. There is so many plastic being polluted that it is impossible to clean up. In the ocean, the plastic gets ripped into shards and that makes in even more impossible to clean up. Thanks to those little shards, a lot of animals in the ocean mistake the plastic for food and then the plastic could kill them or transfer the toxins to that animal and eventually get back to us! Every action has a bounce back action. Do we really want to ruin the world?

  • Are you kidding me?

    Does it really matter? YES!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME MAN? It can get caught in the ocean. Creatures can eat them and die. Plastic-awful for the environment. It can harm trees if it gets caught onto the tree branches or root. My point is: A HUNDRED PERCENT SAY NO? GEEZ!!!

  • Plastic vs. Paper

    To ban plastic bags is a mistake. For 1,000 plastic bags it costs 38 dollars and weighs about 15 pounds, but for paper bags it cost 230 dollars for 1,000 and weighs 140 pounds according to real numbers. Banning plastic bags would mean the environment would suffer according to the Reason Foundation Study.

  • No, banning plastic shopping bags doesnt really change the environment.

    No, plastic shopping bags shouldn't be banned. It is a good idea to limit consumption, which has already began. A lot of shoppers have chosen to use the totes for grocery and shopping. Yes, less plastic bags would be a good thing, but I think the positive affects would be minimal considering the other forms of plastic waste.

  • Plastic Bags Environmental-Good

    Plastics are good for the environment because it saves trees. Whenever paper is not used, a tree is saved from being chopped down and made into paper products. Plastic shopping bags saves the environment especially in regards to saving trees. The disposable recyclable shopping bags are also very environmental helpful.

  • No, I don't think so

    I have checked multiple sources and they all say that maybe paper isn't the better option. Paper bags weigh 5 times more than plastic bags, and even though they biodegrade, well, let me just say no. No no no no no no no no no no no no no no.

  • We all survive

    With plastic bags we can stop wasting paper and now we will able to all live longer. Now we can breath with out air pollutants. WE CAN BREATH AGAIN YEAH. If we live i am good right now so there. But because of paper we will be dead. WE WIN
