Free Screening of ‘Straws’ by Sustainable PG

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Free Screening of Straws, directed and narrated by Tim Robbins

Americans ditch half a billion non-recyclable straws every day, littering streets and beaches and endangering aquatic life. Actor and director Tim Robbins narrates Straws, a colorful history of man’s obsession with using straws, while marine researchers, citizen activists and business owners discuss how they’re creating a sea change – one plastic straw at a time.

Following the film, Jacki Nunez (The Last Plastic Straw), Shelby O’Neil (Junior Ocean Guardians), and Kera Abraham Panni (Monterey Bay Aquarium) will update us on the campaign to ban single-use plastic straws. Wednesday, November 8, 7 pm, Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, corner of Forest and Central in Pacific Grove.

The event promotes “No Straw November.”

Hosted by Sustainable Pacific Grove, this event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.sustainablemontereycounty.org or call 831-643-0707.
