Sustainability films still showing
Earth Day may have come and gone, but you can still catch three more films from Whole Foods Markets' "Do Something Reel Film Festival" at Kahala Mall's Consolidated Theatres and at Kukui Mall's Consolidated Theatres on Maui.
Check these out:
In case you missed it, Suzan Beraza's "Bag It" will be screening at 6 p.m. The documentary film follows Jeb Berrier, an average American who wakes up to how many single-use plastic bags we go through in a day. The problem, he realizes is it doesn't just go away once we're done – because "there is no away."
Some other films you can catch include:
