Letter to Pak n Save Manager

Kia ora manager,
My name is jayde, I am a year 8 student at pt england school.
I am writing this letter to explain why plastic bags should be banned from the shops all around Auckland.

One reason why i think you should ban plastic bags is because there single use,
meaning there only used once. People go to pak n save and use a plastic bag to hold there shopping,
but then once they've finished with them they leave them lying around and they go into places they
shouldn’t and then it causes trouble.

Another reason is because the plastic bags are getting into the ocean and it’s killing our marine life,
and our native animals. For example when Turtles see plastic bags they eat them because they think
it’s a jellyfish, jellyfish is the  Turtles favourite thing to eat, and another example a bird might eat a bit
of material, glass and bits of plastic bag because they think it’s food.

My last reason why plastic bags should be banned is because it can harm our health.
A plastic bag can travel a long way and still be in tip top shape, meaning when it finally
gets taken to the dump and gets crushed it makes air pollution and it harms our health and
can make us sick, another way it can make us sick is the fish, we eat fish that have eaten rubbish like
“plastic bags”.

Hopefully from my three ideas i have persuaded you to go along with my plan and ban all the plastic
bags from the shops around Auckland, of course we can still use bags to hold our shopping in but not
plastic, we can use tote bags, that way we can use them over and over again and it won’t cause as
much trouble.

    My name is Kyra and I am a Year 7 student from Grey Main School. I love your post about the letter to the Pack N Save manager because someone also really wants to ban those stupid plastic bags!

    This reminds me of doing some research on plastic bags. Did you know that research tells us that only 1 out of every 200 plastic bags are recycled. This is a real problem and I am glad you have tried to persuade someone to get rid of them for good!

    Maybe you could have a little look at your spelling. I did see a couple of lowercase i's by themselves. Another thing, your name is a Noun and it deserves a capital!

    Great letter!

    From Kyra
