Suitable for: People of any age interested in protecting the environment and their own health
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.”

In Case You Missed It (ICYMI) Film is an occasional feature about movies still worth seeing if you missed their original release.
