Free Film Screening of Bag It

Join freegan.info for a free film screening of Bag It: is your life too plastic?

     Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes – single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is “away?” Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life  and human health?
     Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb’s journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb’s journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.
     Followed by a discussion about the film and plastics in NYC.

We have limited time in the space, so the film will start shortly after 6:30pm.

    It could have been better, honestly. I'd seen the movie already so not getting to see it was no great loss. But it could have been a better showing.
