In celebration of Plastic Free July Wingecarribee Shire Council will be hosting a dual screening of the environmental documentary ‘Bag It’.

The first screening of the award-winning documentary will take place at the Bundanoon Soldiers Memorial Hall on Saturday 14 July and the second at the Mittagong Playhouse on Sunday 29 July.

Doors for both screenings open at 12.30pm.

Michael Rhydderch, Council’s Environmental Project Officer said the film followed the journeys of Jeb Berrier as he tries to make sense of our dependence on plastic bags.

“The film explores the issue of pollution and identifies how our daily reliance on plastic threatens not only waterways and marine life, but human health too,” he said.

Following the screenings audience members will be invited to share some of their ideas on how they have reduced their plastic usage.

“Council holds numerous waste reduction courses throughout the year but often the best ideas come from our residents themselves,” Michael added.

Movie patrons will also receive a plastic-free information pack at the conclusion of the film with practical examples on how to reduce plastic usage.

Both screenings of Bag It are free to attend but bookings are essential.  To confirm your seat visit www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/events.
