Straws the Documentary Save Our Shores Screening
Documentary Screening: STRAWS

Documentary Screening and post-screening Q&A with Dr. Wallace J. Nichols and Jackie Nunez, The Last Plastic Straw


Join us for the screening of STRAWS at the Santa Cruz Film Festival on Friday, October 13th!

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 Q&A 

A Q&A after the film will include Nunez and Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, local author of Blue Mind who was interviewed at the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the film.
