…In the US it is estimated that we throw away 60,000 plastic bags every FIVE seconds…."Bag It," an award winning documentary, began as a film about plastic bags and evolved into an investigation of plastics and their effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our bodies.
The showing of the film "Bag It" will highlight the launch of Citizens for Sustainable Bagging, a group dedicated to working with individuals and businesses in the Greater Newburyport Area to minimize the use of plastic bags in our coastal communities.
Please join us and consider joining the "Bag It" movement to help the whales, dolphins, birds and other critters and ourselves survive.
