Join us for an encore presentation of the award winning film "BAG IT - Is Your Life Too Plastic?". Presented by the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship's Green Sanctuary Program. Brooks Anderson from Bag It Bellingham will update us on the proposed plastic shopping bag ordinance and we will have tables for writing letters to the city council.
Free Admission - donations of clean, reusable fabric shopping bags for Lydia House greatly appreciated.
Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. What he discovers is shocking! Bag It makes it clear that it is time for a paradigm shift. Join Jeb as he meets with people who fought the American Chemistry Council lobby that spent more than a million dollars fighting the Seattle bag fee; as he interviews a man sailing the Pacific in a boat made of plastic to raise awareness about our ocean’s health; as he gets tested to determine the levels of chemicals in his own body; and as he welcomes his baby into the world, a world he hopes we can leave with a little less plastic and in a little better shape for the next generation.
