Bag It - Monday Night Movie

Event Description

'Bag it', a multiple award winning film, is a must see for all ages. We are living in the age of plastic and 'Bag it' asks the question, 'Is your life too plastic?'

Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow "everyman" Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

A key point is that plastic is too often manufactured for a single use, taking home groceries and then throwing the bag away. Or drinking the water then tossing the bottle in the bin. Simply calling attention to this notion is an eye-opener.

The film makers follow it up with how hard to recycle plastics are. Sure, everyone knows that plastics go in the recycle bin, but those numbers in the triangles are important, and some plastics are more recyclable than others. A lot of what gets put into the bin can’t be recycled and ends up as trash. That’s something most of us don’t think about when we recycle.

Then there’s the idea that plastic doesn’t decompose. A lot of it ends up in the great pacific garbage gyre, where Albatrosses from Midway island swallow plastic bottle caps and are being killed.

Bag It makes a lasting impression, exposing the effects of plastic on ourselves and our environment.

Questions and answers will follow the movie session with Tania Potts from YesKanDoo as our special GUEST SPEAKER.
