My topic is plastic bags. The damage they are doing to the environment and why they are being banned in southern California.
My main points are the damage plastic can be to the environment on land, in the ocean, and to us human beings. Bag pollution is damaging southern California oceans and landfills.

What interests me the most about this topic is that people would want to be against banning plastic bags when there is no good that comes from using plastic.
