Documentary looks at plastics use

BAR HARBOR — A free screening of “Bag It” will take place at Reel Pizza Cinerama, 33 Kennebec Place, on Sunday, March 25, at 2 p.m.

“In this 78-minute touching and sometimes funny film,” said a press release, “we follow Jeb Berrier as he embarks on a global tout 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 hard it is to even go a day without plastic and how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it, today.”

Following the film, members of A Climate to Thrive’s zero waste group will lead a brief discussion about what can be done here on Mount Desert Island. Reusable produce and shopping bags will be for sale at wholesale prices.

This film is sponsored by A Climate to Thrive and Sierra Club Maine. Visit
