SCHOOL IMPACT CAMPAIGNS IN DALLAS AND LOS ANGELES FUNDED!
STRAWS, an award-winning documentary film highlighting the devastating levels of straws and other plastic pollution in our waterways and oceans, launched its School Screenings Impact Campaign with 50 Los Angeles area schools receiving free screenings in April 2019. The screenings were funded with the support of individuals and foundations.
The producers piloted this program with EarthxFilm in Dallas. The School Screenings campaign is funded entirely by tax-deductible donations. Contributions may be made here. Schools and organizations, can find more information and order the STRAWS documentary and curriculum from the distributor Video Project’s website.
The goals of the entire Impact Campaign is to:
• Educate and inspire up to 250,000 youth across the USA in grades 3-12 with film screenings and guest speakers and STEM/STEAM/Next Generation Science Standards lesson plans, which challenges students to find out how and where plastic pollution accumulates, create and implement solutions, and then evaluate the results. The lesson plans were sponsored by Plastic Pollution Coalition and Plaine Products, a body and hair care company that utilizes re-usable steel bottles
• Measure behavioral change of student’s relationship to single use plastics provided with surveys and evaluation reports conducted by See Change Institute.
