22ndBag It: Documentary Screening & Discussion – 7:00pm, Falmouth Library Join Falmouth’s Recycling & Energy Advisory Committee (REAC) for a screening and discussion of the documentary film bag it.  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 wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it.
