If you (like me) missed the Loft Theater’s screening of “Bag It” back in February sponsored by the Sierra Club & Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection (click here), you have another chance to see it for free again this Friday at:
Catalina United Methodist Church, fellowship hall
2700 E. Speedway (NW corner of Treat Ave.)
Join us for a FREE screening of the award winning documentary “Bag It”. If you care about the condition of our beautiful earth, if you are concerned about the health of our children, if you care about the survival of our wildlife now ingesting our throw-away plastic, you want to see this film!
The Students for Sustainability sponsored an earlier showing of this movie on Tuesday April 24 at UA Gallagher Theater, which I did see, along with only about 20 students. But the movie is very thought-provoking, and mostly addresses the wastefulness of single-use plastic bags, bottles, dishes, containers, etc.
The documentary movie maker Jeb Berrier also addresses the content of plastic, the danger of plastic to our environment (especially the oceans), and even to our own adult health and the health of our children. One of the students was there dressed up in the costume of 500 plastic bags which is supposedly the amount of bags a person uses in one year.

Please see this movie and start thinking about the over abundance of plastic in our lives. More grocery stores could start encouraging shoppers to bring their own cloth bags. And please recycle whatever plastic you can. The City of Tucson just announced a new system which will take all rigid plastics in our blue barrels (but sadly not those grocery plastic bags):
Is your life too full of plastic?
