It’s estimated every day in the U.S. alone, 500,000,000+ plastic straws are used once and tossed. 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.

“Straws” leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and empowers individuals to be part of the solution.
