Jeb, an average American guy who is admittedly not a "tree hugger,"
makes a resolution to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store.
Little does he know that this seemingly simple decision will change his
life. He comes to the conclusion that plastic has finally caught up to
us, and looks at what we can do about it. He embarks on a global
fact-finding mission to examine our society's use and abuse of plastic.
Jeb looks at the throwaway mentality, our culture of convenience, over
consumption of throwaway products and packaging, and the absurdity of
terms like "single-use disposable." With humor and a personal point of
reference he exposes the environmental effects of plastic on a wide
range of species, lands, waterways and human health. Reminding us of
the hundreds of choices we face each day, one regular guy helps
identify smart alternatives and solutions to a global problem. Bag It is being screened as a work-in-progress.
