Straws the Documentary Save Our Shores Screening
Documentary Screening: STRAWS

Documentary Screening and Post-screening Sample Discussion with Key Advocates of No Straw November


In honor of No Straw November, join us for the screening of STRAWS at the Monterey Public Library on Tuesday, November 14th!

STRAWS

STRAWS is an award-winning documentary that illuminates the problems related with straws and other single use plastic pollution that inundate our waterways and oceans. Half a billion unrecyclable plastic straws get used every day in the U.S., ending up in landfills and on streets and beaches. The film includes Jackie Nunez, a Santa Cruz local and Sanctuary Steward volunteer with Save Our Shores, who founded “The Last Plastic Straw” in 2011. Other local locations and people include Westcliff area; Steve Elb, owner of Olitas on the Wharf; The Bagelry in Santa Cruz; Kim Solano of Haute Enchilada, Moss Landing; Big Sur Charter School and Save Our Shores. With animation and segments narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS (33 minutes) is funny, entertaining and informative. The film leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and its harm to marine life.

Come learn more about how single-use plastic pollution affects marine life. Also discover how even small habits can have a huge impact, and what you can do to help!


Post-screening Sample Discussion

A sample discussion after the film will include the founder of the Last Plastic Straw Jackie Nunez as well as  Shelby O’Neil of the Jr. Ocean Guardians, Monterey Regional Waste Management District Sustainability Director Jeff Lindenthal, representatives from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Ocean friendly Restauranteurs, all of whom have successfully spearheaded the No Straw November Movement in Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay.
