Warehouse Letter

Room 1 decided to send a letter to the Warehouse because they were asking a couple of students to buy a plastic bag in exchange for a token. They were just trying to help our school pool.

Dear the warehouse

To whom it may concern,
My name is James Robb, I am a student at Sunnyhills school.
Three of my classmates were told to by a plastic bag for a token. It cost them ten cents for a bag. It says on your website you are trying to reduce the amount of plastic bags, so why do you have to sell a plastic bag for a token?

One trillion plastic bags are made every year, and approximately 380 billion plastic bags end up in the ocean. A large number of animals die every year.

I understand that the money from the plastic bags funded the school pool heat pump.  but I just don't understand why you have to buy a plastic bags to get a token. Instead of giving a customer a token when they buy a plastic bag, could you instead give the customer a token if they don't use a bag?

I like shopping at the warehouse because you always have bargains. Thank you for helping us get the heat pump. Thank you for reading this letter, I hope to stop selling plastic bags.

Yours sincerely,
James Robb

  6. congratulations Jamie a very convincing argument. I like how you said you should give customers a token if they don't buy a plastic bag But where will all the money come from to fund raise? you also have good solid evidence


  7. Well done Jamie, great persuasive letter

  8. I like the idea of having a token for NOT asking for a bag! This puts a more positive spin on receiving tokens for the community challenge which we are trying to win by having the most tokens. I agree, as an enviro school we should be supporting NOT using plastic bags to be more sustainable.
