For three and a half months now, we’ve been posting blog posts to help you find ways to conserve water in your day-to-day life. For even longer than that, we’ve been tweeting, posting on Facebook, and preparing for our even larger-scale plan; the production of our documentary, The Longest Straw. We love water. Not just as a resource that keeps us alive and makes our food, clothing, and everything in life possible. We also love water as a beautiful natural resource that nourishes all life. And we want to preserve our natural water systems. Even though our film will focus mostly on the LA Aqueduct and its impact on Mono Lake, Owens Lake, and their tributary streams, the fact is that these issues can apply to any city, any town, any place where humans live. We can’t seem to settle down without changing the environment around us, and while that’s just part of the world we live in, conscious usage that stems from awareness can shape our towns and cities for the better.
We believe that the production of The Longest Straw is the best way to reach out to people who are otherwise unaware of these issues. We want to take a complex, inscrutable system and make it accessible for everyone. And you can help!
We’re trying to raise the funds to make this film. You can help us by sharing our campaign on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media profiles. You can also talk about our project with your friends and family. And of course, the biggest, most direct way you can help is by giving back. Even something as small as a dollar can add up in a big way.
We know how annoying it is when random strangers hit us up for money, which is why we’re going to wrap this up here. Your help is always appreciated!
