Details: Every day in the USA, half a billion non-recyclable plastic straws are used once and tossed, ending up in landfills, littering streets and reaching
beaches. Actor and Director Tim Robbins narrates a colorful History of
Man's origins and obsession with using straws and marine researchers,
citizen activists and business owners discuss how they're making a sea of plastic straw at a time.
