  • Plastic is damaging the earth and killing all its animals.

    Stop plastic! Its bad and its killing the animals on land and in the sea. Ban plastic! Plastic bags float into the sea. Then a turtle comes along and thinks its a jellyfish and eats. After an hour or so the creature dies and floats to the top of the sea. People find it and feel bad for the poor thing

  • Stop Plastic Now!

    Imagine if you were a turtle, Searching for food, And you come across a tasty treat. Jellyfish. After you have consumed this appetising meal, You start to float to the ocean surface, Only to be killed by a passing predator or starved to death. However, The jellyfish wasn't a jellyfish. It was a plastic bag. Tim Silverwood from Take 3, An Australian group aiming to reduce plastic and clean up the oceans, Quotes, "We see thousands of coffee cups and lids through our clean-up activities polluting beaches, Waterways and parks and streets. " Do you want a future like this, Yet ten times worse? Annual plastic production has skyrocketed from 1. 7 million tonnes in 1950 to 300 million tonnes today. That's a lot of plastic! 7 sea turtle species, Half of sea mammals and almost 2/3 of sea birds have been injured or killed by plastic, Which is over 400 species. I could go on forever, But indubitably, You must feel that plastics have a horrific effect on the environment.

  • Oceans polluted by plastic

    Many animals are killed and more and more animals are becoming endangered. Animals are eating the plastic and dying. There are areas in the ocean just straight plastic the size of France. The oceans in a few years may become inhabitable because of all this plastic. PLASTIC NEEDS TO GO!

  • Plastic is Plastic, Therefore it's necessary to ban it. 😂

    Plastic is causing harm to the environment. It's proving hazardous for the health of humans, Animals and every living being. Deforestation is really a very serious cause that has started because of plastic, As no place is ratherly available for plastic to be dump. Therefore, Plastic shall be banned completely.

  • Plastic is destroying our planet

    Not only that, But I'm reading a lot of the oppsing views have been "it's not plastic that's bad, It's that more people need to recylve". Are you kidding me? More people need to do their research and educate themselves on a topic before they evolve an opinion. Many places and people still throw it in the garbage, They don't recycle and even when it does get recycled, The process of recycling itself is terrible for the environment. Plastic leeches carcinogenic toxins into our air and groundwater etc. . .

  • It kills, it's toxic, it's necessary

    People lived without plastic years ago and we can too. It is without a single doubt, destroying our planet at an alarming rate, yet few seem to care or take the time and effort to change. Oceans full of plastic are not only a disgrace, but are killing marine life. Politicians have clearly failed us in the name of greed and weakness. They can ban plastic of all kinds, humans will find more suitable alternatives, yet they do nothing more than may silly statements about making change in years to come, in other words, when they are collecting their pension, someone else can deal with the problem, like their children, grandchildren. It's time for the masses to take action as politicians are clearly not suited for the stop. Let's stop paying them to sit idle and use that money to make positive change, this year!

  • It should be banned .......

    Its creating a huge problem all over the world . Also no need in reducing their numbers because it will create the same situation and same problem although their number is less. Now , we are also facing with global warming . We have no other alternative then banning them. Now also the time has not gone. This is the right time to stop them by growing in numbers .

  • Plastic is a revolution, it was made for a purpose

    Everything used in day to day life is made of plastic.For people saying it should be banned the laptop in which they are typing is it not plastic. The problem is just with the way it is used not the item itself. We should use it properly and correctly instead of eradicating it

  • Ban all plastic!

    Nature cannot digest it. We got on fine before it was invented. The cost in damage to the natural world is not worth the convenience it offers. Only where there is no acceptable alternative in crucial applications should it be allowed under licence - e.g. some medical or safety applications.

  • Plastic is the epitome of a capitalist society

    Profit above all else leads to cheap materials used in everything to keep cost down no matter the harm.
    The laptop I'm using to write this is basically 90% plastic, plastic is low quality and cheap.

    I don't mind paying more, anything plastic feels cheap, even a £4000 TV is made of plastic.

  • Why Plastic Should Not Be Banned

    Plastic should not be banned because nearly all everyday objects are plastic so if we ban plastic we have going to think of an alternative for our food wrappers like bread bags, Chips bags and more, We would also have to find an alternative for classroom objects such as pens, Tables and chairs. I don't think the government would have a hard time funding so much tax payer money for all classroom equipment, Food wrappers and much more.

  • Is the alternative really that much better? And is plastic the problem?

    Plastic bans may address one of the many issues of pollution on Earth, namely pollution of the water bodies, but bans such as the EPS bans in California will impose further consequences to the environment. Currently, the main alternative to plastic is paper, which through the manufacturing process produces more waste, water, and air pollution than plastics. Furthermore, plastic products are cheaper and use less resources than paper products (20% more fossil fuel and 50% more electricity according to a FORTUNE report).
    The recent large-food companies’ straw bans also raise concerns. The bans are largely ineffective - any paper products that are food-contaminated are unrecyclable, and even then, they are usually lined with plastic to make them sturdier (As well, the new lids proposed by Starbucks actually use more plastic than before). Although alternatives to these straws are available, many of these could pose hazards to people with disabilities who suffer from this ban. Moreover, large food-chains will not be impacted as greatly as small local businesses, that rely on plastic as it is cheaper. In fact, a study done by the MB Public Affairs found that a plastic ban in New York City equates to a 94% tax to local eateries.
    Plastic bans are meant to address pollution of water bodies such as oceans and rivers, but banning plastic in the US would not change the overall outcome of pollution in the world (as it ranks only 2nd in water pollution, with China as 1st). Much of the pollution comes from improper waste management of plastics in developing nations. According to a 2009 UN Water Report, “70% of industrial wastes in developing countries are disposed of untreated into waters where they contaminate existing water supplies.” Without changing the management of waste and plastics, the bans on plastic will not solve the more significant problem that is global water pollution, and instead, may even cause harm to the environment in the form of waste production and air pollution.

  • Think it through!

    Think about the impact before you decide.

    Gather all your belongings that DO NOT contain plastic. That includes any prosthetic limbs/body parts you may have.

    Throw away everything else.

    Now do the same for all the members of your family, your village/town/county/country/continent/planet.

    Now supply replacement items for everything you just threw away, but without using plastic (because let's face it, there will have inevitably been a few things in that huge pile of waste that people actually NEEDED and that you must return to them in a plastic-free form)

    If you can do this successfully, let me know and I'll change my mind.

    As it stands, better product design, better attitudes towards resource efficiency and better recycling/manufacturing processes would probably be a more sensible way to go in order to deal with the issue.

  • We need plastic

    We need plastic on our food and bottles and pens and 95% of our classrooms are made of plastic and we really need plastic in our lives to live and for many more things to eat and to drink but we can't get rid of plastic because it releases toxic fumes.

  • No baning plastic

    We are now using to much plastic in our lives. It will be hard to trash all the plastic and use a another enviroment. Another cause is that plastic is used for our comfortable lives. Plastic made our lives comfortable. In korean it is called 은혜를 원수로 갚는다. Plastic made us comfortable so we should don't ban it.

  • What are we going to do with all the plastic that gets dumped
