Celebrate the recent plastic bag ban in Los Angeles by inviting friends over for a screening of Bag It, a documentary about "regular Colorado guy" Jeb Berrier who makes a simple decision to stop using plastic grocery bags and ends up discovering how plastic everyone's life has become. Plastic appears to be everywhere and used in everything, and Berrier looks at what consumers can do about it.

Suzan Beraza's Bag It is now airing on the Documentary Channel. Catch it May 31 at 6 p.m.

The film has won several awards including Best Documentary at the Durango International Film Festival, Best Environmental Film at the Sedona International Film Festival and Audience Choice at the Telluride Mountain Film Festival.
