    Plastic Bags Are Gonna Stay For A While

    Plastic bags have been a staple when buying goods for many years. This has unfortunately lead to a downhill path. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States alone used and threw away 4 million tons of plastic bags...

    • Dear Alvaro
      I am very interested by your post, “Plastic bags are gonna stay for a while,” because you brought some interesting information that caught my attention. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Although banning plastic bags would help the environment, there’s also a downside”.
      ” I think this is thoughtful. Because Everything that has a good side also comes with consequences or a bad side.
      Another sentence that I found interesting was: “If plastic bags were to be banned, then they all risk losing their jobs.” This stood out for me because I have family who work in factories making these types of bags and it would impact them negatively if this happens.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because they caught readers attention and it’s very interesting.

    • Dear Alvaro:
      I am interested by your post, “Plastic Bags Are Gonna Stay For A While,” because you brought up a topic that not alot of people talk about .
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “People who don’t care enough to properly dispose of their plastic are also responsible for plastic being where it shouldn’t” I think this is sad because people do not realise the damage they are causing.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you bring up the underlying topic that people stray away from

      I am commenting on your post, “Plastic Bags Are Gonna Stay For A While,” because I am very concerned with the amount of plastic polluting the earth. I am aware and worried about the effects that plastics have on the environment. I am glad to hear about the efforts to recycle the plastics. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “To conclude, it is our job to stop the suffering of our planet’s animals and clean up this mess.” I think this is inspiring because it makes hope seem in reach. It also provides a reason for recycling. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I feel that you will continue to address issues that need to be addressed. I also enjoy your writing style and word choice.

    • Dear Alvaro
      I genuinely enjoyed reading your post “Plastic Bags Are Gonna Stay for a While,” because this topic is about something that more people should address.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “To conclude, it is our job to stop the suffering of our planet’s animals and clean up this mess.” I like this sentence because i think it overall summarizes what you talked about. You also include your own personal opinion and what you believe is right.
      I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked reading your post. I liked it because I would have not expected you to write about this topic. I really like how you composed your post, and how you used multiple sources as your evidence.

    • Dear Alvaro:

      I am intrigued about your post, “Plastic bags are gonna stay for a while” because it’s an issue that hasn’t had as much attention as it should have. This is an issue that affects us, the environment, and animals so negatively, that if something isn’t done in the near future, there might not be a chance at recovery.
      One sentence that caught my attention is: “…it is our job to stop the suffering of our planet’s animals and clean up this mess.” I agree with this because we are the ones responsible for creating an issue that shouldn’t have existed in the first place.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you have in store in the future because you pointed out who and what is affected by this issue. I also enjoy the insight you included on the topic.

    • Alvaro! Your post is so interesting. This is such an important topic that not enough people are talking about. I am very fond of the ocean and all of its creatures, and I find it so sad when I see pictures of a seals stomach cut open with pure plastic filling it. I am also very involved in ocean conservation, and our trash may be the biggest problem that our ocean faces. This article really goes into detail and explains all of the facts and evidence. Thank you for spreading the word.

    • Plastic Bags are a classic dilemma today because of the amount of jobs in the plastic bag industry. You said “it is our job to stop the suffering of our planet’s animals and clean up this mess.” I completely agree. We need to ban plastic bags and a way to support the people who would lose jobs. There’s no other option, because by 2050, if nothing changes, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

    Dear Osiris,
    I enjoyed your writing , “Is Boredom a Good Thing?,” because it provided me with a new way of thinking about my bored moments.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “A way to get used to boredom is by using our creativity and imagination. Instead of looking at boredom as a bad thing, we should use it as an advan…Read More
