Bags kill marine life

Dear Editor:

I think plastic bags should be banned from stores. The reasons are:

Three weeks ago we learned how much plastic bags pollute. If you think about it, almost everything you use in a day is plastic, and everything in a store is plastic. It is sad because marine life is dying, especially sea turtles, because they mistake the bags for jellyfish. Usually you see plastic bags everywhere you go, but we have done an OK job of not having them fly away.

That is why I think we should ban plastic bags.
