FILM SCREENING MAY 30: IS YOUR LIFE TOO PLASTIC? BAG IT
The Natural Resources Committee recommends the documentary film: "Is Your Life Too Plastic? Bag It!" The film follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. He decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? The film is showing Thursday, May 30, 7:30 pm at the Esquire Theater, 320 Ludlow Ave. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
