Apr 14, 2014 02:00AM
In celebration of Earth Day coming up on April 22, Fernandina Little Theatre, the U.S. Green Building Council and the Ray Anderson Foundation have been presenting a Green Carpet film series to examine environmental issues and foster dialogue about sustainability. The award-winning documentary films have been shown at the theater on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. throughout the month, and there’s still time to see two more wonderful films this month.

On Tuesday April 15, the film fest presents “Tapped,” a look at the big business of bottled water, and how it has deceived the public and damaged our Earth. On April 22, Earth Day, Gasland Part II is an in-depth examination of the dangers of fracking, now occurring on a global level in 32 countries.

Tickets are $6 per person per screening and available at the UPS Store. A portion of proceeds benefits the U.S. Green Building Council, North Florida Chapter. For more information visit www.ameliaflt.org. Fernandina Little Theatre is located at 1014 Beech Street.
