The Last Straw
April 19, 2018 from 5:30pm-7:30pm at UC Davis Tahoe Science Center
Do one thing this Earth Day and commit to being straw free. 500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That is enough straws to wrap around the Earth’s circumference 2.5 times a day! Join local students and become part of a regional and global movement to eliminate plastic drinking straws from our landfills, streams, oceans, and beaches. Students will host educational tables during happy hour from 5:30 – 6 p.m. At 6 p.m., students will present on local programs to reduce single use plastic waste and host screenings of the short films “Straws” and “Everything Connects.” This collaborative event is hosted by local students together with IVGID Waste Not, Keep Truckee Green, League to Save Lake Tahoe, SOS Outreach, Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships, Tahoe Institute for Natural Science, and UC Davis TERC. Register for this event here.
