I believe that people should have to bring their own bags when they go shopping.
If more bags are used, the environment will become more polluted. Most plastic bags eventually end up in a landfill where they can remain for as a long as 1,000 years. Plastic bags are recyclable, but only about 5 percent of them are recycled.
Also, plastic bags cost money. In some malls, they make you pay for your plastic bags, like at H&M. It's good that they make you pay because then you won’t want the bags to take your things home. If you really want, you can get some plastic bags from home and then take it to the mall with you, then they won’t have to give you plastic bags.
It doesn’t matter if you have a lot of money or not, you should not pollute the environment by using plastic bags. It is much better to bring your own bag to the mall to bring your things home.
We can recycle our plastic bags, but we really need to stop making more of them. Please remember to take your own bag to the store and be respectful of nature.
