  • We should ban plastic bags.

    Babies can choke on the plastic and die. Oil is made into plastic and we shouldn't waste is. We could use the oil for heating our home instead. Besides only 5% of plastic bags are recycled. It is not good for the environment because it doesn't decompose. There is a patch of plastic bags in the middle of the pacific ocean. Sea turtles choke on them because they think that it is jellyfish instead.

    Need of the hour Plastic bags have already created a havoc in our life. As it is not only harmful to the animals but also to our mother earth .We should not bury our heads in the sand like proverbial ostrich but act upon the prevailing situation and start using jute bags which are a safer bet.
    Plastics are cheap that's true but what about the aftermath who is going to think about it??
    We are known as so called "social animals",having great ability to think we are the major reason for our own
    destruction than any other creatures who can't even think how strange it is right???
    Thus THE MORE WE INVENT,THE MORE WE DESTRUCT
    Reusable Store bags are more efficient The whole reason we have plastic bags is for efficiency. But the store bought bags can carry 3-4 times as many groceries as a normal plastic bag. Both plastic and paper bags are bad for the environment.


    But reusable store bought bags are good for the environment and for convenience due to the fact that they carry more groceries, so you have to make less trips from your car to unload groceries. Also seeing as how they are durable you use them several times and don't throw them out.

    We banned plastic bags in my state (Washington State) and its been working pretty well for us.
    We only have one planet And we are destroying it. Of the litter we see in our towns and cities, plastic bags and reusable coffee cups and some of the post popular. Some plastic takes over a lifetime to degrade and, as litter, will continue to harm habitats. On top of its negative effects on the visible environment, the production of most plastic requires the use of oil- another resource that we, the people, have been mindlessly abusing over the last several decades. We need to stop polluting the planet and preserve it for the future.
    Kill plastics or kill earth. If we don't ban plastics our landfills will fill up and we may have send our garbage to mars to dump it there. Now the time has come to ban plastics or ban human beings from earth. Better go with the earlier one.
    PLEASE SAVE THE EARTH AND YOURSELVES! SAY NO TO PLASTICS.

    Thus this is why weshould ban plastic bags

  • Plastic creating drastic results

    I feel more and more technological advancements are threatening our habitat
    we are just changing earth to some other planet which does not support any life

    Thus this is why weshould ban plastic bags

  • Plastic should be ban

    Well plastic bags should be ban because its REALLY not good for the earth. The world will turn a garbage land plastic should be ban so the earth can live also so we can leave because none does community service anymore. Its sad plastic bags need to be ban save our earth

  • It really does help the earth

    Yes i know tons of people could lose their job but we would inform them weeks before so they time to a new job. Think of the most beautiful place you know think what it would look like with plastic bags all over the trees and on the grass. I am in fourth grade and i have seen once beautiful places looking like a dump we need to ban plastic bags for the sake of the plaint earth!

  • Oh my gosh yes

    We are totally killing the earth here with the plastic thing so yes we should ban the bags
    Also to some (not all) of the people who said no, we are not trying to ban all plastics, just plastic bags. I think you missed a few words in the thing we're debating about.

  • What is the point

    If we band plastic we will just have no computers or no watch we use so much plastic in one day we wake up brush are teeth with it and we eat dinner and every thing so why should we band plastic you are typing with plastic, I use my brush to brush my hair you do not know how much plastic we use a day. Did you know 1 pond of plastic will go faster then 1 pond of 1 pond of paper. So that is why we should keep plastic.

  • Recycle the Bags Instead

    Plastic can be recycled so let's do that. We should have an American Job Corp that goes through dumps and fishes out plastic bags. It would help the unemployed get working again and help us recycle! Then we don't need to waste plastic any more and the problem is solved.

  • These debates are getting ridiculous

    So we are doing this same debate in your classroom.I'm in sixth grade.I don't think it would make it a bigger difference than before. Just like another anonymous said lets start to recycle if we recycle plastic bags we will not be killing animals and not have to ban them.Also, they do help because we use them for food,groceries,and all sorts of things.

  • We Americans need plastic bags!

    Do you know how many people use plastic bags for things? 30,000 people could lose their jobs if you do ban them. A ton of bags do make it to the landfills and question, without plastic bags, we don't have trash bags or good stable grocery bags. You got to think people.

  • Why do I care

    I don't think plastic bags will kill us all and destroy the world.
    And earth doesn't care it's a big rock floating in the middle of no where
    It's funny how we praise a stupid rock more than we praise god.
    So go and litter and destroy all you want.

  • I don't see how this could help.

    Yes many animals die because they get themselves caught in plastic bags, however unless we introduce a cheaper alternative that does not hurt the environment, then life will be much harder for the American people. Think about how many plastic bags we use. We use them in food, groceries, and many other things.

  • Logic da bomb

    Well these other "no" arguments are retarded, "oh it doesn't matter" that's not an argument buddy.

    It shouldn't be banned because plastic bags ARE SAFER for earth-- they literally produce LESS POLLUTION. Its due to the process it takes to make paper, the trees needed to be cut, the oil it takes to cut them, the chemicals it takes to make pulp, there are several things. Moral of the story is plastic bags unrecycled produce less waste than paper bags unrecycled, when recycled plastic still produces less waste, however paper catches up slightly..This is due to plastic losing power when being recycled, meaning it gets lower n lower in quality as its recycled. Stretchy n weaker.

    However yea unless your composting brown bags andthey don't have ink, paper bags are MUCH worse. Like almost double as bad

    its the fool's argument to ban plastic bags.. At first it sounds great but research shows how bad paper is

  • Plastic bags are cool

    Thi is stupid not banding them

    Plastic Bags Should Be Banned Yes, plastic bags should be banned as they are not biodegradable and thus fill up our nation's landfills. This causes increased land pollution as they sit underground and never return to the Earth as broken down minerals. Thus, the land is forever tainted. Paper bags are obviously a much better solution.

  • Plastic bags and bottles are good

    In California a man at a deli had soup in a paper bag and it burst the bag and the hot soup spilled on his daughter and burned her greatly. The man later sued the state of California for 100,000 dollars for banning plastic bags. To months later California made it illegal for ban of plastic bags. In conclusion, the ban of plastic bags do more harm then good

  • Why even consider this?

    There are more cons than pros to such a ban.

    First of all, how would dog owners scoop their dogs' poop?

    Second, canvas bags can catch whatever germs were on the food and give them a place to reproduce. Salmonella, E. Coli, etc. Can all grow on the bag.

    Third, going green can make you mean. It's called the moral balancing theory. People who buy green products don't feel like they have to be good people in other areas. You hear it all the time. "I am not a bad person! I recycle! I use a reusable bag! I drive an electric car! I am a vegan!" You can be a total psychopath and be green.

If you say plastic is bad for environment so you're wrong !! WHY ?? Cause plastic didn't went there on its own it's the people who just aren't sophisticated to throw them in the dustbin or recycle them. They even might compare this to paper and say it will decompose if there aren't literate. A clear to the point example can be with electricity.... If there is an increase in incident like short circuit we won't ban electricity but we would be going to look why it happened and how to prevent it. Plastic is really helpful but the people are acting illiterate and throwing them here and there. This is not even just carried by illiterate but literate too you can notice it in morden city's and even your homes as well.
