STRAWS is an award winning documentary that illuminates the problems related with straws and other single use plastic pollution that inundate our waterways and ocean.

“I hope to get people thinking about how small habits can add up to huge impact. Removing plastic straws is a tangible, simple change people and businesses can do that truly makes a difference,” says filmmaker, Linda Booker

With colorful straw history animation and segments narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS (33 minutes) is funny and entertaining. The film leaves audiences with the clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution. It illustrates how individuals, groups, business owners and leaders around the globe are reducing plastic straw use.

STRAWS won the Outstanding Achievement Award in Environmental Film at Cayman International Film Festival, and was called “An inspiring story of how it’s possible to make a sea of change, one straw at a time,” by the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival.  See the Trailer

Battery Recycling Update

In the past eight months, we recycled 210 pounds worth of batteries!  That’s 25 pounds per month–or the weight of an average two year old….

Two Year Old

Since we started the CFCC Battery Recycling Program in Fall 2014, we have recycled 627 pounds (averaging over 17 pounds per month…and growing).  Keep up the good work!
