Starting March 4th here in Oregon we are getting the opportunity to see the film Bag It. This film is about a man, who is not all that “green”, who has taken a pledge to stop using plastic bags. The film follows him on his journey as he becomes educated about the use of plastic, and how our over usage is affecting our world.
The film uses plastic as its focus, but addresses our “throwaway” mentality. We are a culture of convenience, and we are going to have to face the outcomes of that. If you would like to check this film out, it will be playing on National Public Television starting April 18th.
