'Bag It' - Learn How to Eliminate Plastic Bags

They seem to be everywhere – flying in trees, floating down the street, clogging our streams, and cluttering our landfills. Only a generation ago they did not exist. They are single-use plastic bags.

Sustainable Lawrence in cooperation with the Office of Sustainability Coordination at Rider University is sponsoring an environmental movie Bag it! as part of their Green Film Series. Discussion will follow the movie.

Rider University – Sweigart Hall 115
Oct. 3 at 7 pm. [74 minutes]
2083 Lawrence Rd.
Lawrence Township, N.J.

Learn how one man, Jeb Berrier, changed his life forever by making the decision to stop using plastic bags and how we can follow his example.

“Think about it, why would you make something that you’re going to use for a few minutes out of a material that’s basically going to last forever, and you’re just to throw it away. What’s up with that?”~ Jeb Berrier

Jeb Berrier’s funny, touching, and informative movie “Bag it” is free.
