Bag It follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American…states the website for the film which airs at The Smith Opera House, Geneva, NY, Thursday, September 18th at 7:00 pm. A question and answer session will follow the film viewing. Admission is $2, with the proceeds helping to launch the local branch of the grassroots organization BYOB NY (Bring Your Own Bag NY), focusing on the cities of Canandaigua and Geneva. Co-sponsors include the Smith Center for the Arts and Zero Waste Coalition in partnership with The Unitarian Universalist Church of Canandaigua and Flag of Earth.

The mission of the Ontario County BYOB NY organization is to promote sustainable practices to protect our community environment by adopting reusable bags and banning single-use bags, through education and legislation.

Bag It follows the use of plastics in our modern world, details the true costs of our plastic indulgence, and offers ideas of how to reduce our dependency on plastics in our personal lives.

The BYOB NY organization is ready to help citizens end their plastic bag use by making re-usable bags available at the Smith Opera film event and future events in the Geneva and Canandaigua areas. A fundraiser silent auction will occur at the Bag It film event, with the proceeds going to the purchase of re-usable bags to provide to the public. A framed fine art giclée print of the drawing “Extinction” by Barbara McPhail will be auctioned.
