First they handed out recyclable bags outside local grocery stories at their "Bag It" event, and now the Go Green Galloway Task Force for Sustainability will be screening the documentary by the same name.
Go Green Galloway will present a special screening of the award-winning enviro-documentary Bag It on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at the at 7 p.m. Admission is free, and the event is open to the public.
In the movie, "everyman" Jeb Berrier follows the country's dependence on plastic bags from landfills to oceans, rivers and human health. He explores the proliferation of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean more than twice the size of the State of Texas.
The screening is part of the Bag It campaign to urge 25 towns across the country to become official "Bag It" towns by the end of the year. A "Bag It" town is a town that has either banned plastic bags voluntarily or through a town ordinance. A town ordinance that places a small charge on single-use disposable bags is another way a town becomes a "Bag It" town.
Go Green Galloway will also host another day at local grocery stores on Saturday, Oct. 15.
