Straws - Documentary

You're invited to a free showing!

The City of Lake Oswego and the Surfrider Foundation Portland Chapter are excited to bring the short documentary Straws to the Lake Theater, 106 N. State Street, at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, December 12. 

Straws was named one of the “5 documentaries that will make you rethink single-use plastics” and takes an educational and at times humorous look at the history of straws. Stick around after the screening for a panel discussion on single use plastics and how to use less of them in your life. There will also be a raffle for Surfrider swag and reusable straws!
