“Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic?”

What you should know: In his informative and often funny way, “everyman” Jeb Berrier explores the complexities of plastic in our economy and ecology.

It starts with the plastic bags that skitter across our landscape — hence, “Bag It” — and goes on to investigate the impact of plastics on everything from the oceans to our bodies.

Prepare to think twice about single-use disposables and wonder how we can kick this habit of convenience.

FYI: More than 1,000 festivals, nonprofits, theaters, churches and community organizations have hosted screenings of “Bag It.”
