Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. He looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic making process. When Jeb’s journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it.
Followed by a Q&A with:
- Isabelle Durant – European deputy, vice-president of the European Parliament
- Joan Marc Simon – Executive Director of the organisation Zero Waste Europe
- Chris Van den Bilcke – Head of UNEP’s Liaison Office to the EU in Brussels.
The film was organised in partnership with the Green-Up Film Festival and the VUB.
