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.

Recycle this!

Dear Renee - 

What is the best way to get involved and have an impact on what the city of Indianapolis decides regarding recycling?

I find it ironic to see all of the new billboards around town noting the problem when the solutions haven’t seemed to follow.

Thanks!

Have a seat

I have several expired car seats that can no longer be used. These things are huge and I feel bad dumping them in the garbage, but I can’t find any information about recycling them. Any ideas? Thanks!
