Plastic bags, you see them everywhere, don’t you? They’re in stores, homes, and sadly, even in our oceans. These lightweight, easy-to-carry items have become a part of our daily lives. Yet, they pose a significant problem for our environment. Let’s understand why.
1-minute Speech on Plastic Bags
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, today I wish to speak about an item we all use every day – the plastic bag. It’s so common that we barely notice it. But, it’s time to pay attention.
Plastic bags seem very handy. They’re light, strong, and cheap. We use them to carry groceries, pack lunches, and hold trash. But, have you ever thought about where they go after we throw them away?
Sadly, they don’t just disappear. They end up in our oceans, rivers, and forests. They harm our beautiful birds, fish, and other animals. Some animals mistake plastic bags for food and eat them. This can make them very sick, or worse, cause them to die.
But, there is good news. We can change this. How? By using less plastic bags. We can carry our own bags when we go shopping. We can use lunch boxes instead of packing food in plastic bags. We can recycle and reuse the plastic bags we already have.
Remember, every small step counts. Each plastic bag we don’t use is one less bag harming our environment.
Let’s make a promise today. Let’s promise to care more about our Earth. Let’s promise to use fewer plastic bags. It’s a small change, but it can make a big difference.
Thank you, everyone, for listening. Let’s make our world a better place, one bag at a time.

2-minute Speech on Plastic Bags
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,
Today, I want to speak to you about something you see and use every day. Something so common that we often don’t think twice about it. I’m talking about plastic bags.
Plastic bags are everywhere. We see them at the grocery store, in our homes, and sadly, even on our streets and in our rivers. But have you ever stopped to think about what happens to these bags when we’re done with them?
You see, plastic bags are made from a material called ‘polyethylene’. This is a type of plastic that doesn’t break down or disappear easily. It can take hundreds of years for just one plastic bag to decompose. That’s longer than your life, my life, and even the lives of your grandchildren!
This long life of plastic bags creates a big problem. Every year, millions of these bags end up in our oceans, harming our sea creatures. Turtles, dolphins, and even birds can mistake these floating bags for food. Eating them can make these animals very sick or even cause them to die.
But it’s not just animals that suffer. Plastic bags can block drains, causing floods. They can also make our parks and streets look dirty and unattractive.
Now, you might be wondering, “What can I do? I’m just one person.” But never underestimate the power of one! Every big change starts with one small step.
First, we can start by using fewer plastic bags. When you go shopping, take a reusable bag with you. These bags can be used over and over again, and they’re much stronger than plastic bags.
Second, recycle the plastic bags you already have. Many stores have special bins where you can drop off your old bags. They will make sure these bags are turned into something new, instead of ending up in our oceans or landfills.
Lastly, spread the word. Talk to your friends, your family, and your teachers about the problems with plastic bags. The more people know, the more they can help.
Remember, every plastic bag that we don’t use or that we recycle, is one less bag hurting our planet. It’s one less bag in our oceans, one less bag in our parks, and one less bag in our streets.
In conclusion, plastic bags may seem small and harmless, but their impact on our planet is huge. We all have a role to play in solving this problem. Let’s start today, let’s say no to plastic bags, and yes to a cleaner, healthier planet.
