Global Learning Initiative’s “Bag It” film night on October 18th @ 6:30 pm at the Stan Hagen, NIC’s Comox campus, with guest speaker Helen Boyd, Coordinator of Comox Valley Nurses for Health and the Environment. Admission is by donation.

Bag It follows Colorado resident Jeb Berrier as he asks the question: What happens to all the plastic we throw away? And what happens when it all catches up to us?

The 78-minute documentary focuses on the environmental impact of everything from grocery bags to baby bottles and has won a host of awards, including ‘Best Documentary’ at the Durango Independent Film Festival, ‘Audience Choice Award’ at the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival and the Port Townsend Film Festival’s Special Jury Prize.
