There’s a rising tide of individuals, businesses and public officials that are stepping up to be a part of the solution; and to help stop the use of plastic straws. STRAWS, the film, can amplify this movement and inspire a ripple effect, creating a sea of change around the world.
This campaign will unfold over coming months in partnership with schools, governments, organizations and businesses. Together we will undertake a three-pronged strategy that will:
1. activate individuals to change practices and talk to others about plastic pollution
2. reduce business & institutional consumption of plastic straws and related items (cups, utensils, styrofoam)
3. encourage and support policies that ban unnecessary single use plastics
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. We are very grateful for funding contributions (see below) to help ensure the success of the campaign.
