Lafayette Sustainability Film Series: Double Feature – Straws + The End of Snow

April 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

FREE

STRAWS

It’s estimated every day 500,000,000+ plastic straws are used once and tossed in the U.S. alone. Ocean Conservancy ranks straws as the #5 most found litter item on beaches. They’re non-recyclable, so they wind up in landfills, litter streets and add to the estimated 8.5 million metric tons of plastic debris in oceans annually.

THE END OF SNOW

A scientist dredges up 10,000-year-old silt from the bottom of an alpine lake. A lovable hermit known as the Snow Guardian, meticulously records weather data at his remote Colorado cabin. A Wyoming rancher raises cattle sustainably with water conservation in mind. By analyzing the data from these different sources, climate scientist and skier Jane Zelikova hopes to better understand the dwindling Western snowpack and how people can adapt to a future without snow. And because the Rocky Mountain West depends on snow for recreation, water and food – and is increasingly plagued by wildfires and droughts – this important research comes not a moment too soon.
