- PleasantvilleRecycles.org presents “BAG IT! (Is Your Life Too Plastic)” at the Jacob Burns Film Center on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. Arrive by 6:30 p.m. – there’s limited seating. Sara Goddard from the Sustainability Committee of the City of Rye and Sharon Rowe of Eco Bags will speak. According to the film description, “everyman” Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its affect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.
