Library staff recommendation: Bag It

Bag It
Directed by Suzan Beraza
Greenfield DVD GD1027

The plastic bag, the plastic water bottle, the plastic liner in your to-go coffee cup.

The plastic grocery bag is the number-one consumer item in the world: 500 billion bags are used every year. Made out of a non-renewable product (oil) that takes 70 million years to create, used for a few minutes, it lasts just about forever in the landfill. This informative and entertaining documentary takes an eye-opening look at the ultra-thin plastic bag and other plastic convenience items and the price we pay for them. You’ll never again see that bag caught in the tree or blowing down the street in the same way.
