STRAWS is a documentary film about straws and other plastic pollution that inundates our waterways and oceans. It illustrates how individuals, groups, and business owners around the globe are reducing plastic straw use through education, outreach, policy development and utilization of non-plastic alternatives. The thirty-minute film includes colorful straw history animation and segments narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins. The film provides a hook for starting conversations about plastic pollution. It leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and empowers individuals to be part of the solution.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with speakers including Aquarium Vice President of Operations John Rouse, USC Sea Grant Education Programs Manager Linda Chilton, and Kim McIntyre, coordinator for the Aquarium Conservation Partnership.
