    -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

    BPA and phthalates are found in plastic.
    Can cause (to name only a few):
    -various cancers
    -infertility
    -heart disease

    102cities and countries have banned plastic bags
    These include:
    -Germany, South Africa, India, South Korea and Australia
    This does not include:
    -The United States

    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?
