Storyline

STRAWS is a documentary film that charts the history of straws and continues to present day issues that surround our current culture's obsession of single use conveniences. Used once and tossed, billions of non-recyclable plastic straws are used annually winding up in landfills, littering streets and finding their way to oceans. The Ocean Conservancy ranks straws as the number five most popular collected item at beach cleanups behind bottle caps, wrappers, and cigarette butts. A viral video of a sea turtle with a plastic straw in its nose has now sparked anti-plastic straw campaigns globally and inspiring sustainable alternatives. Actor/Director Tim Robbins narrates a humorous history of straws, and Director Linda Booker interviews marine researchers, artists, citizen activists, and business owners in California, Costa Rica and North Carolina about how it's possible to make a sea of change, one straw at a time.
