The Dubuque Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Agency is sponsoring a showing of the movie Bag It. The film will be shown on Tuesday, November 6th, 7p.m. at Loras College, St. Joseph Hall of Science in Hoffman Auditorium.
What started as a documentary about plastic bags has evolved into a wholesale investigation into plastics and their effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our bodies. In the U.S., it’s estimated that we use 60,000 plastic bags every 5 seconds. Most of these are thrown away. But where is away? This film puts humor, truth, and the shocking use of plastic all together to present our society’s addiction to throwing it all away.
Tell your friends and come be part of the Bag It revolution! For more information, call the Solid Waste Education Office at 563-588-7933.
