Bag It – “Is Los Angeles ready for a ban on plastic bags?”

LA Green Screen

presents:

Bag It

a film screening and a panel discussion

“Is Los Angeles ready for a ban on plastic bags?”

an Earth Week event

Wednesday, April 13th at 8pm
at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood

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?

Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society—from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products—is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb’s journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

A panelist discussion immediately follows the screening.

Panelists include:

  • Katherine Rubin, Managing Environmental Specialist, LADWP Sustainability Programs
  • Andy Shrader – Independent member of the Clean Seas Coalition, co-lead grassroots organizer for Los Angeles citywide plastic bag ban push
  • Meredith McCarthy – Director of Programs, Heal the Bay
