STRAWS is a powerful documentary about plastic straws and other forms of plastic pollution that inundate our waterways and oceans. The film illustrates how individuals, groups, and businesses around the globe are reducing plastic straw use through education, collaboration, policy development and utilization of non-plastic alternatives. With colorful opening animation narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS is entertaining as well as educational.

STRAWS inspires action and empowers individuals to be part of the solution. Film screenings that are followed by panel discussions or a filmmaker presentation can spark a movement in YOUR community!

Join the STRAWS Impact Campaign today by booking a community screening!

Together we can encourage people, businesses, and policy makers across America and the world to quit using unnecessary, damaging plastic straws.

"My goal for this documentary is to make people think about how small habits can add up to huge impact. Removing plastic straws is a tangible, simple change people and businesses can do that can truly help make a difference."
