There have been many bans of plastic bags in Canada and the world. Every year the amount of plastic bags go up dramatically. Each Canadian uses roughly 200 bags a year(Battle Of Bag) This shows how people create more and more waste every year. The plastic bags are not just going to disappear it’s a physical thing that has mass and it needs to stay here on earth. Here in Canada they have been trying to put bans on plastic bags for a long time but people are just complaining about the bans. They keep trying to put bans on the bags because of the environment. The biggest problem though is the increase of plastic bags and how they are contaminating our rivers, oceans and wildlife.(Ditch The Bag). Plastic bags are highly contributing to the co2 in our atmosphere. That’s why I think Canada should ban plastic bags because it is really affecting the environment in bad ways. They are filling up landfills and because there is not many options for getting rid of them from landfills so we melt them.
Many people in Canada and around the world are banning plastic bags for the same reason. Plastic bags are a huge impact in the environment. When people make plastic bags in factories it causes more problems for everyone. As the factories make the bags co2 is realized in the atmosphere adding on to the world wide problem of global warming Denmark semi banned plastic bags since 1993. Semi banned means that they put a price on the bags there are not fully banned. So when they put a price on the plastic bag the usage of the plastic bag has been cut in half(Ditch The Bag). Also china put a price on their plastic bags. The lightweight plastic bags which are the common ones found in stores were banned by the heavy weight ones got a price put on it. Both of those things china did is causing less plastic in out oceans and lakes and less in our wildlife. There are many problems with plastic bags being our main source of bags. When plastic bags are made they are made in factories and when made the fedorites emit co2 into the atmosphere causing global warming.
