Western Addition Branch Library, 1550 Scott St. at Geary, SF 94115
Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways.
In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, 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.
Bag It ( has been garnering awards at film festivals across the nation. Join your neighbors to watch this terrific documentary! Each screening with be immediately followed by a discussion led by staff from the SF Department of Environment.
