    12. It is important to give reasons to support a claim because reasons are like evidence except reasons give more examples and statement to make the audience understand your claim. If i was a lawyer I would let my client tell the representatives what happened and then I would tell them reasons of why they should believe why they should understand the defendant needs to be put away, when you give reasons your getting them to understand your claim.

    13.Formal- We Should ban plastic bottles because there harmful for the environment. Plastic Bottles can put harmful chemicals into our environment. Plastic Bottles can also effect animals because the plastic has toxic chemicals in it which can effect animals with diseases and effect reproduction. Plastic Bottles can also affect people because plastic has bisphenol A, and this chemical sweeps into the water and when we drink the water we ingest chemicals. which gives people diseases such as cancer and lead to hormonal issues.

    Informal- We Should get rid of PB(plastic bottles) b/c there bad for the world. PB can put bad chem. into our world. PB can also EFX animals b/c the plastic has bad chem. in it which can EFX animals with DZ and effect reprod-. PB can also EFX people because plastic has BPA, and this chem. goes into the water and when we drink the water we gulp down chem. which gives people DZ such as CA and lead to alot of concern.

  66. We Should get rid plastic bottles because plastic bottles have toxins like dioxins. And dioxins are .  "are a group of highly toxic chemical compounds that are harmful to the health". Plus plastic bottles have a chemical called vinyl chloride.  And last time i checked when you inhale to much of vinyl chloride it can lead to death. Now if your wondering why plastic bottles aren't good for the environment hears why."80 percent of plastic water bottles end up in landfills and each bottle leaks harmful chemicals into our environment along the way as it decomposes". So for now on i hope you think twice before drinking or even throwing your plastic water bottle on the ground.
