The Last Straw
Incline Village, NV

Special Event and Short Films
Do one thing this Earth Day and commit to being straw free. 500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That’s enough straws to wrap around the Earth’s circumference 2.5 times a day! Join local students and become part of a regional and global movement to eliminate plastic drinking straws from our landfills, streams, oceans, and beaches. Students will host educational tables during happy hour from 5:30 – 6 p.m., present on local programs to reduce single use plastic waste, and host screenings of the short films “Straws” and “Everything Connects.”
No-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Registration here.
This collaborative event is hosted by local students together with IVGID Waste Not, Keep Truckee Green, League to Save Lake Tahoe, SOS Outreach, Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships, Tahoe Institute for Natural Science, and UC Davis TERC.
