HELP PROVIDE STRAWS SCREENINGS to 250,000 STUDENTS in THE US !
We’ve partnered with Video Project for this exciting grassroots educational impact campaign to distribute the STRAWS documentary to schools across the country. The objectives of this campaign are:
• Educate and inspire up to 250,000 youths in the U.S. with free Straws film screenings, school curriculum, discussion guides, guest speakers and evaluation surveys to measure impact.
• Give students in grades 5-12 an understanding of the history of straws, how they're made with fossil fuels and why plastic pollution is harmful and deadly to countless marine animals.
• Promote alternatives to plastic straws and inspire students, educators and parents to use less single use plastics at home, in their schools and community.
For only $1/student, the campaign will provide a film screening, a toolkit, action items, and metrics to track the impact campaign results.
As with any major social change effort, it takes a lot of hours, outreach and skilled people to make it a success! We are asking our supporters to help make a sea of change, one straw at a time.
