Bag It

(45 min.) - Suzan Beraza. Try going a day without plastic. In this touching and funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb 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 our bodies. Single use plastic packaging is the number one item we find when cleaning up the Missouri River. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it.   Click here for the trailer»
