Friday Night Flicks: “Straws” at Bay Street Theatre
February 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$12
Followed by a talkback with Bob Deluca, President of Group for the East End
With colorful straw history animation narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and empowers individuals to be part of the solution. It’s estimated every day 500 million plastic straws are used once and tossed in the U.S. alone. Ocean Conservancy ranks straws as the #5 most found litter item on beaches. They’re non-recyclable, so they wind up in landfills, litter streets, and add to the estimated 8.5 million metric tons of plastic debris in oceans annually. Together with Bay Street Theater, Group for the East End is screening this film as part of their efforts to raise awareness about the negative effects of single-use plastic on eastern Long Island’s land, water, and wildlife.
