Straws, Free Movie Screening with Darien Environmental Group

January 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

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.

Details: Thursday, January 24  at 7:00 pm in the Community Room at the Darien YMCA. Snacks and drinks will be served.

Sponsored by the Darien Environmental Group and BYO Darien. Please RSVP to
