The Big Bend Group of the Sierra Club (BBSC) is hosting two screenings of the award-winning environmental documentary Bag It at 6:00pm and 8:00pm. Bag It is a touching, often flat out funny film that follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he tries to make sense of our dependence on plastic bags. Although his quest starts out small, Jeb soon learns that the problem extends past landfills to oceans, rivers, and ultimately to human health. The average American uses about 500 plastic bags each year, for about twelve minutes each. This single-use mentality has led to the formation of a floating island of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean more than twice the size of Texas. These bags and other plastics threaten the lives of sea creatures that ingest or are entangled by them and ultimately the health of others higher in the food chain. Sierra Club Florida has made the elimination of single-use plastic bags a conservation priority. Between showings there will be an opportunity to discuss the movie and actions we can take to address this important issue. In additions, a limited supply of re-usable bags purchased by the Sierra Club will be available for a donation. The BBSC invites you to come, learn more, and join in our efforts to be a part of the solution.
