Westport Village Environmental Film Series #1
Amazing Green Planet, kyGREEN.tv and Heine Brothers Coffee invite you to attend the Westport Village Environmental Film Series debut, Friday, September 9 at 8:30 pm featuring the film Bag IT.
Bag It - Runtime: 78 minutes, Directed by Suzan Beraza
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 is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. 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-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products-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.
Weather permitting, the film will be presented outside. (Rain location, Heine Brothers in Westport Village)
