A free screening of the film "Bag It- is your life too plastic?" will be offered at Teatro Zuccone, 222 East Superior Street, Thursday, January 31. This film follows Jeb Barrier, an average American who takes an entertaining and sometimes humorous look at the use of plastic bags in his Colorado community. Along the way, he learns about the lifecycle of plastic bags – where they come from and what happens when we throw them away. We can probably all agree that single-use bags are a great way to help us get our goods from one place to another. However, they can have unintended consequences for our environment and our local infrastructure. In fact, American’s use 60,000 plastic single-use bags every five minutes. When we throw these disposable bags away, where is away? In Duluth, a group of community leaders and concerned citizens are in discussion with local retailers, community members, businesses and organizations about how to make doing business more sustainably. The group is aptly named Bag It! Duluth. In partnership with the Lake Superior Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, Bag It! Duluth is hosting the film "Bag It- is your life too plastic?" The film begins at 6 p.m., and doors open at 5:30 p.m. The event is free. The Bag It, Duluth group invites you to join the conversation and follow their blog: www.bagitduluth.wordpress.com.
