New Free Showing on Monday, October 1 — On August 20 folks gathered at the Blue Moon to watch the movie, “Bag It! Is Your Life to Plastic?” There was such a great response we decided to show the movie again on Monday, October 1 at 7:00 pm at the Blue Moon Evolution.

We showed the movie “Bag It” a thought provoking movie about how much plastic we use and why it matters. We had such great discussion and feedback the movie that we decided to run it again. This time we will invite store owners, politicians, and other “change makers” who we think can make a difference. Please join us and invite others who you think could benefit from an eye opening movie that will make you think every time you purchase or throw away a plastic bag or bottle. It’s crazy when you think about how much plastic we all use – and there are alternatives.

Americans use 60,000 single-use plastic bags every five minutes. Single-use disposables like water bottles, coffee cups, plastic utensils and take out containers make our lives more convenient, but end up in overflowing landfills, clogged rivers, and our ocean. And when the plastics break down, they do not biodegrade – they break down into fragments that contaminate our natural resources.

Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. To see a trailer of the movie, click here.

No need to RSVP or register – we’ll just see you there! The Blue Moon is located at 8 Clifford Street, Exeter, NH.
