Should Plastic Bags Be Used At Supermarkets

18/10/17 - Lucy Walt Use Persuasive structure Should Plastic Bags be in Supermarkets? Plastic bags are an issue world wide, they are killing the creatures in our seas, and they and are killing the birds on land.

 If you think that paper bags are going to help well you're wrong. Over 14 million trees are being consumed a year. In terms of production, producing plastic bags take 4 times as much energy as paper bags. But over the duration of production paper products will create, oil in our seas and 70% more air pollution.

 Burning plastic bags are bad for the ozone layer. It is bad because it will make a whole in the ozone layer causing ultraviolet causing skin cancer and rise of water levels. Did you know that 80% of Americans choose plastic. Plastic bags are photodegradable. This means it takes for a very long time to break down the plastic. The effect of this is that plastic bags may get covered in other garbage causing it to not dissolve so it is stuck there forever.

 Imagine you're eating a plastic bag how would you feel? Well first you would not be able to breath, the plastic bag will get stuck in your lungs and you can’t get it out and then you will die. Sounds horrible, well that is what is happening to our sea creatures nearly everyday, if you don’t want that to happen then stop using plastic bags at the supermarket.

 Last week in Te Ngahere, we were learning to write a persuasive piece of writing. I think I did well with my ideas to persuade people. Next time I need to work on not putting capital letters in random places. I hope you enjoy my writing.

My Visual Mihi

Last week in Te Ngahere we were trying to learn our morning mihi. Then we got told to get some pictures on a google drawing about the mihi to help us to remember what to say with images. I chose the images I got because the images help me what to say when I do the mihi. The images help me by whenever I may get stuck I can look at my images and straight away know I need to say this next. The visual mihi helps me because my images are really clear and memorable and they are always there for me.
