Friends of Greenwich Point & Bruce Museum Seaside Center welcome you to support Skip the Straw Greenwich with a screening of the documentary 'Straws.’
Every day in the U.S., millions of non-recycled plastic straws are used once and tossed, ending up in landfills and incinerators, littering streets, and polluting waterways and beaches. Actor Tim Robbins narrates a colorful history of straw use and marine researchers, citizen activists and business owners discuss how they're making a sea of change...one plastic straw at a time. Learn more about the local impact of plastic pollution. Roger Bowgen, Greenwich Shellfish Commissioner, will discuss the impact of microplastics on aquatic life in the Long Island sound. Presentation following screening of 'Straws'. Raw bar provided. And join the town-wide cleanup sponsored by Greenwich Green and Clean from 8 a.m. -12 p.m.
