      Bag It Trailer
    • Single Use Plastic
      Use for Minutes, Last for Years
    • Marine life and our ocean
      -Plastic pieces out-number food for marine life
      -80% of trash from land ends up in the ocean
      -Over 260 species are affected
      "The ocean is the blue heart of the planet, we should take care of our heart." 
— Sylvia Earle, National Geographic Explorer
    • Our Health
      In the US a chemical has to be proven harmful before it’sNOTsold to the public.
      BPA and phthalates are found in plastic.
      Can cause (to name only a few):
      -various cancers
      -infertility
      -heart disease
    • Plastic Gets Political
      102cities and countries have banned plastic bags
      These include:
      -Germany, South Africa, India, South Korea and Australia
      This does not include:
      -The United States
    • So what is the message?
      Live Simply!
      Use Less Plastic
      (it will be here a while)
    • Sources Used
      Interviews: everyday people and researchers
      Health trials (doctors): to test BPA and Phthalates in body
      Statistics
    • Audience Response
      Feeling alarmed
      Make simple changes in everyday life
      Be informed
      Pass on the information
    • What are viewers saying?
      "A powerful and deceptively simple movie that is sure to change the way you look at every day objects.  I didn't expect a movie about plastic bags to change my life in such a deep and profound way.”
      “Gripping, funny, intelligent and sure to change your life.”
      “See BAG IT – and Bag all of the useless, toxic and ugly plastic cluttering up YOUR life.”
    • So was it Effective?
      Partly No: individuals who do not see plastic as a problem are not drawn to see Bag It in the first place.
    • So was it Effective?
      Mostly Yes: individuals who know plastic is a problem are now better informed.
      The film is both personal and informational.
    • Post film questions:
      How long does it take for a plastic bag to decompose?
      What type of plastic is actually recycled?
      What are the steps to banning plastic bags?
    • Now What?
      Our roles as an individual:
      1. Be simple and reduce waste.
    • Now what?
      2. Stay awayfrom single use plastic products.
    • Now What?
      3. Be informed and smart about decision making. Choose to use your brain!
    • If the Unites States is supposed to be a global leader, why haven’t we banned plastic bags?
      Why do we continue to use harmful chemicals that impact our health and the health of our children both born and unborn?
