Come out and see the Bag Monster and his giant nest of 45,000 single-use disposable plastic bags, what the average American uses in a lifetime. The Bag Monster will try to convince you and 70 or so of your friends to dress up and become a Bag Monster too. Come on out and help the Bag Monster with his goal to cover the world with plastic bags – or kick him out of your town! This is a highly interactive traveling exhibit and should not be missed. Visit www.bagmonster.com for full details, or contact Wes at [email protected] for a press release.
