Award-winning documentary Bag It comes to Wheaton
Bag It Intro from Suzan Beraza on Vimeo.
WHEATON, MD—GreenWheaton is partnering with Brookside Gardens, Silver Spring Green and Safeway to present a free screening of the award-winning documentary, Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic?
Bag It follows ‘everyman’ Jeb Berrier as he tries to make sense of our dependency on, and single-use mentality towards, plastic bags. Although his quest starts out small, Jeb soon finds our ‘plastic problem’ extends beyond landfills to oceans, rivers and ultimately human health.
Visit Brookside Gardens Visitor Center on January 9, 2012 at 7 PM to watch this engaging film and learn about the simple steps we can take to reverse this alarming trend. You will never look at plastics in the same way again.
The event is free, but seating is limited. Safeway will be providing free recyclable grocery bags on a first come first served basis.
Please register at Bag It Registration. For more information contact Al Carr of Green Wheaton at email@example.com
