Join us for Trash Talk at the Colonial, our next event in ACT’s Sustainable Future Series featuring the film Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic? By the end of the evening folks will walk away with at least three manageable concrete steps to take home and apply to their daily lives in an effort to cut back on something that affects us all, trash. The film has a run time of 78 mins. with a 45 minute panel discussion and session to open the floor for questions from the audience. After the event we invite anyone interested in joining us at Rek-Lis Brewery for a beverage and more casual conversation.
Panelists: Brian Patnoe, Littleton Solid Waste Manager, Reagan Bissonnette, Executive Director of Northeast Resource Recovery Association, representatives from the Conservation Law Foundation & Littleton Food Coop.
About the film
Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes-single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is “away?” Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Bag It follows Jeb Berrier, an average American guy who is admittedly not a “tree hugger,” who makes a pledge to stop using plastic bags. His girlfriend, Anne, joins him in the challenge to decrease their use of plastic at home.
