BAG IT! By Susan Beraza
In the film, viewers are challenged to try to go a day without single-use disposables. What are single-use disposables? They are items that are designed to be used only once and then thrown away: items like water bottles, to- go containers, plastic-lined coffee cups and packaging. How many non-renewable resources are being used to create these items of convenience? Think about the life of a single-use disposable plastic product, from its “birth,” through its short functional life, to its long afterlife.

Plastic is light and strong, it is easy to mold and shape and it is wonderfully versatile, but it does not decompose—when it goes to the dump it can’t biodegrade so it just sits there for thousands of years. Begin to ask yourself these questions: Where does your plastic shopping bag go after you bring your groceries home? Where does your to-go latte cup or plastic water bottle go after you’ve hydrated? Where does the packaging go after you’ve opened your new electronic item? (2012, 74 minutes)
