The Westfield Athenaeum Presents the Documentary, "Bag It"
Please mark your calendars to attend the documentary "Bag It" which will be shown on Saturday, May 7th from 1 - 3 pm at the Westfield Athenaeum.
The documentary shares some important info about our plastic bag use:
"Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes, disposable bags that they throw away without much thought. But where is “away?” Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to the environment, marine life and human health?
"Bag It" follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. 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? What he learns quickly grows far beyond plastic bags."
The WSU students, Michele Brooks and Michelle Coombs will be present to share information from their research and entertain questions.
Please take time to attend this film and bring and your family and friends; it will be an eye opener.
