Did you know that plastic bags are super harmful for the environment? I believe that people need to bring their own bags when they go shopping.
When people take their own bags, it will teach them to be responsible. How? How can you become responsible by bringing your own shopping bag? It is easy! For example, if you leave your bag at home, you can’t shop! So you need to be responsible for your bag. Another example is when you are shopping and you don’t buy anything, you might forget your bag at the mall. If you do, you will have to buy a new one. This will teach you to be more responsible.
Another reason to bring your own bag when you shop is that you can use it again and again so you can recycle it. It also looks nicer than a plastic bag! Maybe your own bag has flowers or other patterns, instead of having an ugly orange MIGROS written on it. And plastics in the ground take 1000 years to go away!!! You will be helping the planet.
My last reason is that the plastic bags are very light, and when you throw them into the trash, they can fly into the ocean. You will say, ‘What happens when the bags fly into the ocean?’ Well, lots of bad things can happen, but I will just tell you three of them: The first one is that if the bag will pollute the ocean. The second is that, when ocean gets dirty with plastic bags, the fishes can get into the bag and when they can’t get out of it they can die. The third one is that your plastic bag looks just like a jellyfish when it is in the water, and turtles love eating jellyfish. When the turtles eat the bags by mistake, they can choke or get sick and die..
In conclusion, it is very important to USE YOUR OWN BAG AND SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT!
