Screening of ‘Bag It’ Documentary Draws Eco-Conscious Crowd to Culver City

The screening Friday at West L.A. College was held by Assemblymember Holly Mitchell and her Environment Cabinet Committee.

Members of the Culver City community came together on Friday to watch a screening of the documentary Bag It, at West Los Angeles College, and to participate in an after-screening discussion with experts and advocates.

The film, which takes a look at the impact of plastic on our society, people’s throwaway mentality and the overuse of disposable products, was hosted by Assemblymember Holly Mitchell’s (AD 47 – Culver City) Environment Cabinet Committee.

Much of the focus of the discussion centered around the problems created by the disposable trash we leave that clogs rivers, fills our landfills to overflowing and destroys our oceans.

Among those in attendance were incoming City Council members Meghan Sahli-Wells and Jim Clarke, as well as West L.A. College President Nabil Abu-Ghazaleh.  

 “This movie was thought-provoking and compelling, not to mention very real in its portrayal of just how dependent we have become on plastic,” Mitchell said in a press release. “I am thrilled that my Environment Cabinet was interested in screening this movie, and that we had an audience on Friday evening of people who want to get educated and engaged around this issue.”

Assemblymember Mitchell has an Environment Cabinet Committee that meets once a month on Wednesdays to discuss environmental issues in the community. For more information, call Assembly member Mitchell’s office at 310-342-1070.
