Bag It” Film to be Shown at Santa Barbara Libraries

Film on Effects of Plastics Pollution - Green @ Your Library Program

“Bag It,” an award-winning movie about the plastics pollution problem, will be shown at three libraries as part of the Santa Barbara Public Library System’s Green @ Your Library spring program.


On Monday, April 23rd at 7pm it will play at the Montecito Library, 1469 East Valley Road; on Wednesday, April 25th, 7pm at the Solvang Library, 1745 Mission Dr.; and on Monday, April 30th, 6:30pm at the Carpinteria Library, 5141 Carpinteria Ave. Admission is free and open to the public.

What started as a documentary film about plastic bags evolved into a wholesale investigation into plastics and their effect on our waterways, oceans and even our bodies. To view a trailer of the film please visit www.sbplibrary.org.

Green @ Your Library programming is supported by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) book-to-action grant, in conjunction with the 2012 Santa Barbara Reads book by Donovan Hohn, Moby Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea… The Book-to-Action programs are supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian. The opinions in programs do not necessarily reflect the position of policy of the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services or the California State Library, and no official endorsement by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services or the California State Library should be inferred.
