Celebrate a Plastic-Free Earth Day: Watch “Bag It” with Green America and Beth Terry

Submitted by aatkins on April 17, 2012

The Green America editors proclaimed our love for the documentary film Bag It in the recent "Take the Plastic Challenge" issue of the Green American magazine, and now, those of you who haven't seen it yet can find out what all of our fuss was about. In fact, we'll be watching it with you—along with other Green Americans from across the country!

On Earth Day, April 22nd, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Green America and Constellation TV, an online “movie theater” platform, will host a Web screening of the film Bag It. This important, moving, and often funny film follows “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 and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

Watch the film from the comfort of your home on your computer, and then ask your questions about plastic pollution and living without plastic via a live Q&A with Green America editor-in-chief Tracy Fernandez Rysavy and “My Plastic-Free Life” blogger Beth Terry, author of the forthcoming Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and You Can, Too (June 2012).

Tickets are $3.99 at www.constellation.tv/bagit  A portion of the ticket sales will go toward funding Green America’s green living programs.

And yes, it's perfectly okay for you to buy one ticket and invite a bunch of friends to watch with you. In fact, we encourage it—the more, the merrier.
