An example of a Persuasive Text!
Dear Miss Higgins,
3R have been talking about the lunch orders. We think it’s better if we didn’t have the little soy sauces. We think we could keep our own soy sauce in our room so we don’t waste plastic.
Firstly, plastic is bad for the environment. Animals that are part of the environment struggle with plastic a lot. They can eat it and die or they can choke and also get strangled. These are some things that plastic does to our animals. And 3R really loves our animals so we would hate to see that happen. We did a survey of rubbish in the yard and we did see a lot of empty soy sauce fishies.
Another reason is that the lunch orders come with unnecessary amounts of soy sauce. If you get 4 sushis you get 4 soy sauces. Some kids don’t even use it or need that much. If we get our own bottle, the people that need soy sauce will get the right amount and the people that don’t need soy sauce wont waste any.
I would like to say, if we get our own bottle of soy sauce instead, it won’t be using plastic but the others use a lot of plastic and get dumped in our school like a rubbish bin.
Finally I would like to state that, even though the bottle is glass, Miss Reus will keep it in a special spot where it won’t break and when it’s in use it will be on a table so the carpet won’t get dirty.
In conclusion, if we have a bottle of soy sauce in our class room we won’t waste plastic, hurt animals, waste soy sauce and we will make sure it won’t break or tip over and dirty the carpet.

… The outcome … we now have a glass bottle of ethically sourced soy sauce. If successful we will consider making this a school wide effort.
I am immensely proud of our children!
