Screening and panel discussion of the film “Straws” at the Oxnard Performing Arts and Convention Center
September 13, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That’s 175 billion a year filtering into landfills and littering our waterways and oceans. Join us for an inspiring evening of positive change with a screening of the documentary, STRAWS. With colorful straw history animation narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, the film leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and empowers individuals to be part of the solution.
Enjoy refreshments, a special Q&A, and art inspired by the film.
We’ll be giving out free stainless steel water bottles while supplies last and there will be a juried art exhibition by students in the City of Oxnard’s After-school Recreation Program.
With special guests:
- Kathi King, Community Environmental Council
- Todd Vasquez-Housley, Environmental Resources Division Manager, City of Oxnard
