WALT Use the correct structure for a persuasive text.
Should plastic bags be used at supermarkets?

Local people feel that using plastic bags are not good. What do you think? I think yes . . . why? You will learn in this article why.

Firstly, what would happen if we put plastic in the sea/ocean? Do you know? Well the plastic will go to sea life and they think it’s food. Here are 2 example: Turtles think it’s jellyfish then eat it and die, some sea life think it is little pieces are plankton so they eat it.

Secondly, if you put plastic in the water if birds swoop down they think it is fish. Also when they die people open them and there are about 45 pieces of garbage inside of the bird!! Most of it is plastic!!

Thirdly, the best option is reusable bags they are the best to use. Why? I think it is the best to use reusable bags because they are Eco friendly and you can use them when you are going shopping. Reusable bags are not only cheaper in the long term, but also save a ton of money in tax dollars because we aren’t spending as much on recycling.  

Now that you know which one is better do the world a big favor and stop using plastic bags and plastic!!
