FMTV - Bag It

Bag It

Runtime: 78m 22s | Release date: 2010

Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes - single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is "away"? Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life, and human health?

Bag It follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society - from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products - is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process.

When Jeb's journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

Loved it. It continues the war on waste that was documented here in Australia, except it went more into the reproductive information which I have know for 20 or more years. Thank you again for putting this into your repertoire.

A VERY good movie on not only plastic bags, but also on plastics in general and how you can make a difference for the sake of your own health. I'm quite surprised the low amount of views on it. Can only recommend!
