‘STRAWS’ documentary advocates for elimination of plastic straws
“STRAWS” wraps up the sixth annual free “Ding” Darling Wednesday Film Series on April 4 at 1 p.m. in the Visitor & Education Center auditorium at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
An official selection for film festivals around the world, “STRAWS” is a 30-minute documentary about plastic straw litter and how we can effect a sea of change – one straw at a time. It points out that U.S. consumption of straws in a single day could circle the earth 2.5 times.
With colorful straw history animation and segments narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, “STRAWS” leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and empowers individuals to be part of the solution.
“Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge hosts the free seven-film, biweekly series with sponsorship from Sanibel-Captiva Beach Resorts. Seating is free, but limited and on a first-come basis.
A short discussion will follow each film to allow visitors to gain more from their documentary-viewing experience by listening to other people’s points of view and analyzing what they just watched.
