I think that a good persuasive topic would be why we should ban single use plastic bags. I think this is a good topic because it has two opposing sides. some people think that single use plastic bags are convenient and others find it bad for the environment. The environment is a very controversial topic and I think it would be great to write about. The average american citizen uses approximately 500 single use plastic bags a year! In my opinion that is terrible and it needs to be changed. That is why I think that this would be a good persuasive topic.
