BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University is bringing “green” awareness to campus through a film series beginning with “Bag It” on Tuesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. in the McCormick Center for the Humanities, room 1303.

In this film, Jeb Berrier, an actor and director, explores the effects of plastic bags. After conducting research with the help of an environmental scientist, Berrier analyzes problems, such as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, and discovers plastics contain chemicals that can cause adverse effects to newborns.
