STRAWS & A Concerned Citizen
Monday, February 10 & Wednesday, February 12, 2020
33 minutes & 41 minutes

Film starts at 7 pm in Sweigart Rue Auditorium (115) and will be followed by a brief discussion.

STRAWS provides alternate, sustainable solutions such as paper, bamboo, glass, or metal straws -- and encourages the simple act of refusing a straw when at a restaurant. Environmental researchers, marine biologists, and activists lay out how plastic pollution ends up doing irreversible harm to the ocean, marine life, and eventually human health if the problem continues to build.

A CONCERNED CITIZEN is a feature documentary about Dr. Riki Ott, a whistleblower who predicted the Exxon Valdez oil spill hours before it happened. A toxicologist, author, and activist, Riki has been organizing the Gulf coast communities to recover from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster.
