Bag it, new documentary about plastification of our world

20 Sep

New interesting must see documentary ‘Bag it’ about plastification of the world! I still believe good documentaries can change our perception of how we threat our earth, here we have a documentary that falls in that category. Go to the website and request a screening @ your school, local community or independent cinema!


information from press kit

“Documentary is a Powerful Look at the Impacts of Plastics on Society”Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes, disposable bags that they throw away without muchthought. But where is “away?” Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to the 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? What he learns quickly grows far beyond plastic bags.
