With the fun of the holidays over, cold weather starting to wear on us, and more darkness than light to our days, we often start to get a case of the blues. Seasonal blues can range from mild for 10-20% of individuals in the US to more severe seasonal depression, known as Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD) for half a million individuals according to the Cleveland Clinic. This educational workshop about the seasonal blues provides strategies to overcome them.
What happens to my straw when I throw it away? Are straws recycled? Are they necessary for drinking? How much plastic is in my straw? Are straws harmful to the environment? Does the health of the environment affect my health?
This movie and presentation sponsored by the Darien Environmental Group and BYO Darien will answer all these questions and more. It will bring you the scientific evidence showing that plastic, including plastic straws, is harming the environment and ultimately our health.
There are, however, ways for all of us to reduce our plastic usage and lead healthier lives. This movie will help us change our culture’s obsession with single-use plastic.
