If you’re a new fan to Constellation, you might have gone to the live Q and A screening of “Bag It” with Jack Johnson and wife Kim November 27. According to rozsavage.com, spreading awareness about living plastic-free is something the musician is very passionate about; the film has special resonance with the Johnsons due to their involvement in supporting environmental education in their home, Hawaii, through the foundation of their Kokua Hawai’i Foundation.

Here’s the official synopsis of “Bag It”:
“Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways. In this touching and often flat- out-funny film, we follow ‘everyman’ Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its affect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.”
Constellation is an online movie experience that allows you to buy a ticket and screen a film with a group, just like you would in a physical theater. However, you can also interact with others by inviting them through social media. Quite a few of the films screened at Constellation are hosted by VIP guests, such as Channing Tatum for the film “The Eagle”. You can learn more at Constellation’s website.
