Films & Webinars
"Bag It" is recommended for tone and humor, but it is long and was done a few years ago so doesn’t emphasize the link to climate change and environmental justice.
Frontline’s “Plastic Wars” is excellent, 54 minutes running time and more recent (2020). But it’s pretty serious unlike Bag It.
“The Story of Plastic” has excellent content, but some people comment that it leaves them feeling discouraged.
“Microplastic Madness” is wonderful, but it does run more than an hour (maybe 70 mins?). It’s about the power of kids to motivate adults to make change. NOTE: We have an action in this toolkit about Microplastic Madness.
