‘Bag It’ film showing Dec. 5 at Shieling
Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes — single-use disposable plastic bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is “away”? Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to wildlife and human health? “Bag It” follows everyman Jeb Berrier as he tries to make sense of our dependence on plastic bags. Jeb’s journey in this feature-length, award-winning documentary starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are they made from? What happens to them after they’re discarded? When Jeb’s explorations take a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it, starting now.
The film will show frome 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Forestry Learning Center at Shieling Forest. For more information, contact Brett Amy Thelen at email@example.com or 358-2065. The program is cosponsored with the Monadnock Conservancy and University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.
