Plastic Free Delaware & BringYourOwnBag Delaware will host two screenings of the short (30 min.) documentary, STRAWS, followed by a panel discussion on plastic pollution.  STRAWS highlights plastic litter, its impacts, and how communities are making a sea change one plastic straw at a time.  Plastic Free Delaware is partnering with Delaware restaurateurs to move towards a “straws by request only” model in order to reduce waste and litter.
