“Straws” Documentary Viewing

November 13, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm


Toward Zero Waste Asheville, NC, Creation Care Alliance of Western North Carolina, Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church and Asheville Green Works are happy to present Straws, a short documentary narrated by Academy-award winning actor Tim Robbins, which charts the history of straws and reveals our culture’s current obsession with single-use conveniences. Throughout the documentary, marine researchers, citizen activists and business owners discuss how it’s possible to make a sea of change through use of sustainable alternatives to plastic.
The documentary was filmed in Monterey County California, Costa Rica, Georgia, and the Blockade Runner Resort in Wrightsville Beach, NC!
Join us for this award-winning film that has been sweeping the nation, and stay after for a discussion of the issue.
