Sustainable Saturdays featuring the Best of the ACFF at the Shepherdstown Opera House

“Bag It” Caitlin Boyle and Lucy Flores, 79:00 mins. 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 tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wide scale investigation into plastic’s effects on our oceans, environment and bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us…and what we can do about it. Donations to offset screening fees gratefully accepted.
