Cinema at the Sanctuary Continues This Friday with “Bag It”

"Bag It The Movie: Is Your Life To Plastic?" kicks off this Friday night at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Alpena — Cinema at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary returns this Friday with the film “Bag It The Movie: Is Your Life Too Plastic?”

Each month the sanctuary features a film that looks at an environmental issue. The story of “Bag It” follows around a man who makes a pledge to stop using plastic grocery bags at the grocery store. Little does he know that the pledge he made would completely change his life and outlook on the environment.

“Awareness about single use plastics is really important for our community these days when we use billions and billions of plastic bags,” said Coordinator Steph Gandulla. “These bags never go away. Single use plastics never goes away so, it’s very important for us to be aware of not only the problems with single use plastics but what we can do to stop using them.”

The film was directed by Susan Beraza and, it took home one award from the Ashland Independent Film Festival. The screening takes place this Friday at 7:00pm at the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center. Doors open at 6:30pm.
