City’s Committee for a better environment (CBE) and the Sierra Club are inviting you to Film Screening of Bag It! on Saturday, February 25, beginning at 1 pm at College Park City Hall, Council Chambers, 2nd floor

This 78-minute award-winning film (sometimes funny, sometimes very sobering) chronicles “everyman” Jeb Berrier, who embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world and, closer to home, pledges to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store. The film examines our society’s use and abuse of plastic and the harm it causes our environment—and our health.

A post-film discussion will include Prince George’s County Council member Mary Lehman (District 1) or her policy analyst, Matt Dernoga, who will summarize what’s happening with the local “bag bills.” Julie Lawson, organizer with the Trash Free Maryland Alliance ( will contribute as well.

The film is free to watch, however registration is requested: Email or leave a message at 240-888-6972
