PLEASE HELP US REACH 250,000 STUDENTS in 2018-2019!

The STRAWS film Screening In Schools Campaign will educate and inspire up to 250,000 youths across the U.S. to take action to end the use of plastic straws and other single use plastics in their schools and communities.

• Youth are the Stakeholders and Solutionaries of the future, and when kids talk, people listen. 

• Science tells us that learning at this age is permanent, and they share their new-found knowledge and inspiration with family, friends and the community.

• With your support, we believe that inspiring youth through media will help us solve the plastic pollution issue.

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.
