STRAWS – MalibuNovember 30, 2018
Crayon Collection hosted a screening of the film “STRAWS” with the City of Malibu at the Civic Theater in Malibu City Hall on November 30, 2018.
The event was shared with members of the Malibu Community, The Plastic Pollution Coalition, the City of Malibu, Crayon Collection Supporters, and more. There was a complete full house and the community became educated on why straws are oh-so-bad.
The evening’s efforts were a huge push by the Habits of Waste Program in Crayon Collection to ban plastic straws and cutlery in the City of Malibu, and it worked!
Thanks to the efforts of Crayon Collection, the City of Malibu passed a ban on all plastic straws, plastic cutlery, and plastic stirrers on February 12, 2018 at 10:45 PM.
“Sheila’s leadership in organizing the “STRAWS” documentary film screening and panel discussion in partnership with the City of Malibu catalyzed the City Council and the community to charge forward on this issue. Sheila has an innate ability to inspire people to make a change for the better, whether it’s one straw or one crayon at a time. These collective actions add up, and we will see the full effect of these individual actions when an entire city chooses to protect our beloved coastline from plastic pollution” –Casey Zweig, Environmental Programs Coordinator | City of MalibuBack to events page
