The Immortal Plastic Bag: a Short Film About Plastic Bags in NYC
The Immortal Plastic Bag is a short film by Joe Harvell, Aaron Reiss, and Jamie Hefetz featured in Gothamist.com today. The film details some of the harms caused by plastic carryout bags in New York City, particularly how plastic bags clog machinery at the City's recycling facilities.
Since the film was made, plastic bag legislation was introduced in NYC Council that would require a 10-cent minimum charge on all carryout bags. To get involved please visit BagItNYC.org and fill out this online petition.
