"Bag It" Documentary Screening in Larchmont & Mamaroneck
The Village of Larchmont Committee on the Environment has announced three screenings of the documentary film Bag It, which focuses on where 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'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.
Bag It will be shown at three different locations. Please see below for a schedule of screenings:
