The award winning documentary film Bag It comes to Delbarton on Tuesday, October 30 at 6:30 pm when the School will host a free screening in the Fine Arts Center Theater.
The concept for Bag It started with one bag and one person who wondered where all those disposable plastic bags and bottles were going. What began as a movie about bags grew into a deeper look at plastics and their effect on our oceans, the land and even our bodies. The use of single-use disposables has led to the formation of an actual floating island of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Delbarton is trying to do its share. To discourage plastic water bottles the School issues each new student a reusable metal water bottle, and
has filling stations posted around campus. This month to highlight
Bag It's message, Delbarton middle school science classes are making plastics
and recycling posters for display in the FAC lobby. Seniors in Brian Theroux's
Environmental Studies class are also promoting the movie and sharing tips on
how to reduce wasteful plastics.
Delbarton invites the entire community to join us for the screening of Bag It on October 30th. Admission and parking are free. Delbarton School is located at 230 Mendham Road in Morris Township, three miles west of the Morristown Green.
