Try going a day without plastic. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic’s effects on our oceans, environment, and bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us…and what we can do about it.

A powerful and deceptively simple movie that is sure to change the way you look at everday objects. I didn’t expect a movie about plastic bags to change my life in such a deep and profound way. Gripping, funny, intelligent and sure to change your life.
Director, ‘The Cove’
This weekend, I watched the documentary, ‘Bag It,’ and think you should see it too! It explores the product we all use—the plastic bag—and the unexpected consequences of using them.

The particular power of ‘Bag It’ is how it moves between disturbing facts about plastic production and consumption, and touching interludes about what matters most – the people we love. With humor, statistical rigor, light-heartedness and sobriety, ‘Bag It’ highlights the relationships between healthy families, reduced consumption and a healthy planet. Buy less!
