More about the film»

Try going a day without plastic.  Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways.  It is the number one item we pick up out of the river.

In this touching and often funny film, we follow "everyman" Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world.

The average American uses about 500 plastic bags each year, for about 12 minutes each.  This single-use mentality has led to the formation of a floating island of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean more than twice the size of Texas.

Please join us on Monday at 7p.m. to learn more about how plastic affects our oceans, marine life, and our health as we kick-off Sustainability Week.  If you don't do anything else on Earth Day this April, come see this film and bring a friend.
