Location: Lamb Room

Bag It (2010) is a documentary film that invites viewers to make their communities a little less plastic. An estimated 12 million barrels of oil are used annually to make the single use, disposable plastic bags that Americans consume, and once they’re thrown away, they become a major source of pollution. This film documents one man’s quest to figure out where these bags come from, where they go, and how we can use less of them.

After the film, Director of the New Canaan Land Trust Aaron Lefland and Education Outreach Coordinator of the New Canaan Nature Center Chris Hendershot will lead a discussion about the impact of plastic pollution on the local environment.
