The first reason why is because we can kill animals. The next reason why is because it can be in oceans pools or lakes. The last reason why we should ban it is because people have trouble recycling and causes a big problem. I hope you enjoyed my reasons thank you.
I know many people may disagree but hear me out. You may think well ok our oceans have plastic, The roads have plastic so how does that affect me? Well the plastic in our oceans could be mistaken for food and eaten by fish which gets the fish sick. The food chain goes on and we eventually eat that fish so now WE ARE SICK TOO. The TOXINS IN PLASTIC can cause breast cancer, Caner, Birth deformities, And many other illnesses. Lets just say you forgot your plastic reusable water bottle outside, When the plastic heats up some chemicals can leak or release into the water causing that water to become contaminated. Now YOU ARE SICK! . . . . AGAIN! I don't think all plastic should be banned. Only SINGLE USE PLASTIC ITEMS! Items of plastic that are used once before they go to the recycling or garbage. Thank you (if you got this far. ) PLEASE DON'T COPY THIS.
Realistically, Looking at the situation of our environment and the condition of our planet, It is evident that something needs to be done to combat the amount of plastic waste, But banning all plastics seems hard to reach at the moment. What would be a more proactive solution would be to initiate a single-use plastic ban that regulates the usage of single-use plastics such as straws, Grocery bags, Utensils, Etc. There are several alternatives to these luxury items that we have become accustomed to: plastic straws can be opted out for those made of bamboo, Metal, Straw, Or paper. Plastic bags can be replaced with reusable ones made of materials like cloth, Cotton, Or made of recycled materials. Additionally, A regulation can limit plastic straw distribution by only allowing restaurants to have a small amount in the back for those who specially need plastic straws, Like those in the disabled community. For plastic bags, A high fee can be placed on plastic bags so that it creates an incentive for people to bring their own bags, Additionally plastic bag take back stations can be set up where people give back their plastic bags so that they can be reused. All and all, Many plastic items are not being disposed of correctly and end up in our oceans and environments. A single-use plastic ban can help us start somewhere to help save our Earth.
The plastic problem is one of great importance, And thinking of that, It can be pursued with a lot of time and patience. It is virtually impossible to say “STOP MAKING THINGS PLASTIC” and this order to be carried out, Since plastic is cheap, And plentiful. Thinking about this, However, We can begin to substitute one-use plastics in our lives, With reusables. E. G. Plastic Bags -> Cloth Bags, Straws -> Strawless, Or stainless steel straws, Plastic Cutlery -> Compostable Cutlery, Etc. Etc. So, While we can’t immediately BAN the production of plastics, What we can do, Is cut back our usage and start using non-plastics as well as recycling.
Maybe we can use water bottles and items like that if we know how to properly recycle them, But single use plastics are so harmful to the environment as they can get into oceans and fish and other sea creatures can eat it, Then we end up eating those fish. Scientists are finding traces of plastic in humans. The other reason is it pollutes the environment. Do we want to live in a trashy world where we have plastic in us? ! ?

Plastic straws can end up in the oceans when plastic is littered on the ground, Dumped in landfills, Or in overflowed garbage cans and blown away where the plastics are broken down and are consumed by animals and the microplastics can be found from the bottom of the food chain all the way to the top of the food chain.
My third argument about Smoking and Lung cancer is that approximately 1. 7 billion pounds of cigarette butts contain plastics. Believe it or not, Cigarette butts contain the most common form of plastic. By banning plastics, We could also limit the production of cigarettes, Therefore reducing the number of human lives taken by lung, Bladder, Liver, And pancreas cancers, Along with many more. There are 480, 000 deaths per year in the United States, Including more than 41, 000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. In our current scenario, Banning plastics is a win-win for humanity and the environment-- so win-win for humans and the environment-- so why not give it a try?
My second argument is about the ozone layer and greenhouse gasses. The ozone layer is a high level layer of gas in the stratosphere. The ozone helps to keep out harmful ultraviolet rays that cause sunburn to human skin and damage to plants. By throwing away so many harmful things, Including plastics, The pollution is burning holes in the ozone layer, Therefore making earth vulnerable to dangerous and toxic light rays from the stratosphere.
The resulting ozone holes let harmful ultraviolet radiation in and add to the greenhouse effect.
My first argument is about how plastics degrade. The average plastic bag is used for approximately 12 minutes. After this, It is either unlikely recycled, Or transported to the landfill. Once this waste is transported to the landfill, It starts to “break down”. This process takes approximately 500 years-- a big price for something used for two tenths of an hour. And then, After 500 years, Just when we believe that one piece of plastic has degraded, It hasn’t really degraded. After being broken down, The plastic turns into a thing called a microplastic; this substance absorbs toxins, And continues to pollute the environment. So, Technically, Although plastics degrade, They never actually degrade and stop polluting the environment.
Lets bann plasticts so that we can live life longer and prosper our inner thoughts, Now this may sound very cheesy but i just really wanted to write something by the way grace i gwen am personally writing this too you this is very fun i like this is awsome
He did nothign wrong and swallowed a couple of grams of lead. Pray for my man and scum gang for life. Also, XXX was a lie my mine he never existed, Plus he hit his wife so he was a bad man lol so eya finish this now me hey
We shouldn't ban plastic becasue plastic is what makes earth. If you ban plastic, You wiill ban the world. Then u will die. Hahhahahaha don't ban plastic if u ban plastic the world will becom flat and then all the australians (really nice guys) will fall off the earth and die.
Turtles are nice. The world would be better with more turtles. They swim around and eat jellyfish. They are also cute, Serving as good household pets. Not only that, Some sea turtles are endangered, So we should try to save these peaceful beasts. Without turtles, The world would be a whole lot worse <3.
This is why most plastics are recyclable, But single use items such as straws, Forks, Spoons, Or plastic bags make a huge impact on the environment. By banning these simple items can solve many problems in the ecosystem. Also there are many alternatives to many single use items. Banning all plastic isn't the answer simply because it's nearly impossible to eliminate all plastics, But if you take simple non recyclable plastics out you can solve many problems. This is why I mainly agree plastics shouldn't be banned altogether.
We need Plastic in our everyday lives. Just think about all the plastic we use. From bottled water, To pencils, Plastic is everywhere. To replace all plastic items, Think about how much money it would take. Plastic is cheap to make, And it's very durable. This makes it a very useful resource. Yes, Plastic creates problems with the environment. Plastic takes hundreds of years to decompose. That is a big problem, But banning plastic is not a solution. All plastic items are reusable, So let's start reusing plastic. Perhaps limiting how much plastic people, And businesses use is a solution. But banning plastic items completely is not a good solution
When you ban plastic that means you have to find replacements for everything that uses plastic thats including almost all forms of container that has plastic. I mean think about it if people would just learn to recycle then maybe this wouldnt be a problem but no people can't simply put an object in a certain bin seemingley everything goes in the trash.
Plastic is generally used for our convenience. Some may say that we can stop the use of plastic because its just our desire, But would not the same go for fastfood then? Its just for our satisfaction, But it's a major cause of obesity. Just like plastic, It has the potential to kill. Therefore, If we ban plastic, For the same reason, We should ban fastfood and all the other negative products/goods.
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.
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.
