Movies @ NCL: Planet New Canaan presents STRAWS

October 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Lamb Room

“Small habits can add up to huge impact,” says filmmaker Linda Booker, whose award-winning documentary Straws explores how discarded straws and other types of single-use plastic are choking our waterways and oceans. This pollutes the water and kills wildlife as it transforms shoreline communities where people live and play into dangerous dumping grounds. The 33-minute documentary features animated segments and is narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins.

PLEASE REGISTER

Following the film, Dr. David Hudson, Research Scientist, and Bridget Cervero, Education Manager, both from the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium, will share how ordinary people can help. Through the Maritime Aquarium’s “Citizen Science” program, Hudson and Cervero and their fellow scientists enlist citizens of diverse ages and abilities in projects to advance research and conservation. They will discuss how their “Citizen Science” initiative to minimize single-use plastic is making a difference, and how each of us can get involved in our own way.

In partnership with Planet New Canaan and the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium.
