Event Description

In honor of America Recycles Day, Carmel Green Initiative (CGI) is teaming up with the Carmel Clay Public Library to screen the documentary film Bag It.

This 2010 Heartland Film Festival selection follows Jeb Berrier, an average American guy who makes a resolution to stop using plastic bags. Little does he know that this simple decision will change his life completely. Jeb navigates our plastic world to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes, disposable bags thrown away without much thought. What are plastic bags made from? What happens to them after they are discarded? What Jeb discovers is shocking.

This powerful documentary tackles the complex and confounding subject of plastic and its effects on the environment and human health. It will inspire citizens to recycle more and reflect on the impact of single-use disposable plastic products.

Following the movie, there will be a brief discussion and an update on recycling in Carmel.

Tickets are not required for this free program. For more information, call the Library’s Audiovisual Desk at 517-4281 or Leslie Webb at lwebb@carmelgreen.org.

Don,

Advantage, Renee! I do have some ideas for recycling tennis balls.

Brushing up

Renee,

I realize that not all toothbrushes are created equal, but are toothbrushes recyclable?

Sarah

Sarah,

Toothbrushes are made of at least three materials – nylon bristles, metal staples that hold the bristles in place, and plastic handles – which makes them challenging to recycle. They are not accepted by [...]
