You will remember the sea turtle, in this short film by Linda Booker that shows why we need to get rid of plastic straws, at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, this Thursday, May 31, at Mathis Auditorium, Valdosta, GA.
Used once and tossed, billions of plastic straws wind up in landfills and streets, finding their way to oceans. Actor/Director Tim Robbins narrates the history and story of STRAWS, and marine researchers, citizen activists, and business owners discuss how it’s possible to make a sea of change, one straw at a time.
Gretchen has found good non-plastic straws at the event. We’ll have them at the event, and she can tell you where to get them.
