I just received a press release from my friends on the Live Green In Plano team, and wanted to pass it on for those of you who live in the DFW area. I love that the City of Plano does such a great job of educating people about eco-friendly living. I’m still vacationing in Florida at the moment, so I won’t be able to make it, so when you go to see the movie (or if you’ve already seen it), please let us know what you thought about it.

Description of the movie:
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.
