Should Plastic Bags be banned from supermarket

Should plastic bags be used in supermarkets?

In my opinion plastic bag should in deed be banned from supermarkets. Why do I think this well I will tell you all about in the next paragraph. What do you think about plastic bags being banned at supermarkets?

Plastic bags are a huge thing in this world. They are use at supermarkets some shopping centres. When you think about plastic bags kill marine animals like turtles dolphins and other marine animals. Did you know that turtles eat jellyfish and when plastic bags find themselves in the ocean there look a lot like jellyfish and the thing is turtles can’t tell the difference between a plastic bag and a jellyfish? How would you like it if you had plastic stuck in your mouth which could prevently lead to choking?

Another reason of mine is that plastic bags are not biodegradable. You’re probably thinking what is biodegradable well biodegradable means that it can break down and it fertilises the soil and water. Plastic bags are photodegradable which means it needs the sunlight to break down and this process take hundreds of years. The bad thing is that at land fills everything is just dumped and most plastic bags are piled under other rubbish which prevents the sunlight from reaching the plastic bags under all of the rubbish. When the plastic bags do break down to smaller pieces they can be carried in the wind polluting soil water and marine animals.

We need to stop plastic bags because plastic bags are helping our ozone layer create a big hole. The ozone layer protects us from the sun and once our ozone layer is broken the heat from the sun melts the icebergs and then water rises also there is a chance people could start to get skin cancer.

Hopefully you agree with my statements about plastic bags. If you want to help bring your own reusable bags to supermarkets.

In the first week of term 4 we had to write a persuasive piece of writing about should plastic bags be banned in supermarkets, at the top of our page we had to write at the top what we were learning. I was learning to use metaphors in my writing. In wrote my story on supermarkets should ban plastic bags. What do you think about plastic bags being ban from supermarkets? Next time I write a persuasive piece of writing I think I need to work on getting more metaphor in my writing.
