Straws - Documentary

Thursday, December 12, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

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!

The Lake Theater was one of the first businesses in Lake Oswego to move away from plastic straws, and we will also introduce Babica Hen and Gubanc’s as Lake Oswego’s first Ocean Friendly Restaurants!
