Director Suzan Beraza met Aurora Robson at the Waimea Ocean Film Festival (where Bag It won Audience Choice). Suzan mentioned Bag It’s Earth Day plan to let loose five Bag Monsters in the NYC subway, Times Square, Grand Central Station, Union Square, and up and down Fifth Avenue, performing guerilla marketing for Banning the Bag.
Robson, an amazing New York artist who creates surreal fantasies from discarded plastic, offered to find artist friends who would join the cause, dressing in billowing suits made of single-use plastic bags.
Check out this video of Robson discussing an installation made of 15,000 recycled plastic bottles!
