Bag It Film Screening

  • Patagonia Lincoln Park 1800 N. Clybourn Ave Chicago, IL (map)

Banning disposable, plastic single-use bags from the marketplace has become an important and controversial issue. Partnering with Surfrider Foundation, Patagonia Lincoln Park is taking steps to make a change here, and now, in our own community. Join us to discuss this important issue. A petition for a plastic bag ban in Chicago will be available for signatures.
