Free Screening of: Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic? January 9th

GreenWheaton is partnering with Brookside Gardens, Silver Spring Green and Safeway to present a free screening of the movie: Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic? Join us at the Brookside Gardens Visitor Center on January 9, 2012 at 7 PM to watch this engaging film about how single-use plastics affect our environment and our health -- and simple steps we can take to reduce this waste.

An average guy pledges to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store. Little does he know that this deceptively simple decision will change his life completely. He comes to the conclusion that our consumptive use of plastic has finally caught up with us and investigates what we can do about it. Today. Right now. The film examines our society’s use and abuse of plastic. When we throw something away, where is Away? An overflowing landfill? A clogged river? An island of trash in the middle of our ocean? Perhaps our very own toxic bodies? Chronicling the global production, use and disposal of plastic bags and other plastics, the film documents the environmental consequences of these products, including the effects of plastics on a wide range of species, lands, waterways and oceans. Traveling the world on a fact-finding mission, the film also identifies smart alternatives and solutions. Plastic will never look the same again! Directed by Suzan Beraza. Produced by Suzan Beraza and Michelle Hill.

Free reusable grocery bags from Safeway will be available at the event on a first come first served basis.

The event is free, however, tax deductible donations to GreenWheaton are appreciated.
