Try going a day without plastic. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he embarks on a global tout to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

filming the on-screen narrator finds he is going to have a baby, so
suddenly the issue involved gets much more personal), intelligent
presentation of facts without screaming in your ear or overstatement,
and the (sadly comic) attempts to be balanced and get the chemical
industry to go on the record add up to a much more enjoyable and
effective environmental documentary than most.
This is the kind of film that makes you want to change your own habits,
and believe you can make a difference, while never feeling like you're
sitting through a 'this is good for you' lecture. It reminded me of
Michael Moore's documentaries, in its playful tone about a serious
issue, but this has a lighter, less sarcastic, more lovable hand.
This would also be a terrific educational tool for 'tweens and teens
(there's probably a bit too much slightly, good naturedly ribald humor
for little kids, and some of the sad images of wildlife killed or
injured by plastics might be a bit upsetting for tots).
Kudos to all involved for this timely and important work that will
certainly effect my relationship to plastics in my world.
This documentary is that eye opening. It will change how you think about everything you consume. Watch it and encourage others to as well, try not to be too obnoxious about it :).
All in all it was an easy film to watch, entertaining as well as informative. Dragged a bit towards the end but not so much I was wondering when it would be over.
I just wanted to update that we haven't purchased but one new box of plastic storage bags since we watched this, and they are for long term storage, and will used again. We still use plastic trash bags, as we don't see any way to do away with them and keep sanitary.
On a side note, since we have been using reusable containers our crisper and our meat keeper are much cleaner, and our produce keeps longer, our stuff in the freezer keeps better. So not only does using single use bags hurt the environment, they cost you more money, as your food doesn't last as long.
Thanks for the documentary. Good stuff.
Overall though, this documentary moved me to consider more carefully my use and disposal of plastics, which was the main goal of the movie. Well done, "Bag It", you accomplished your goal.
