Straws Documentary Free Viewing at the Camas Library on Monday!

Earth Day 2018 is Sunday April 22. The Earth Day 2018 Campaign is: End Plastic Pollution.  Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land, injuring marine life, and affecting our health! Earth Day is dedicated to providing the information and inspiration needed to fundamentally change human attitude and behavior about plastics.

In honor of this year’s Earth Day campaign, two local women – Geri Rubano and Alicia King, and the Camas Public Library have teamed up to present a free screening of the award-winning documentary STRAWS. Directed by Linda Booker and narrated by Oscar winning actor Tim Robbins, the 33-minute documentary highlights the environmental impact of plastic straws and seeks a new path forward with sustainable straw alternatives.

The free documentary screening is open to the public and begins at 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 23, at the Camas Library, 625 N.E. Fourth Ave.

The EWG 2018 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce is here

The 2018 lists are here! Visit to download and learn more about pesticides on produce.

  • Most conventionally grown produce contains pesticides, EWG’s guide lists low- and high-residue foods
  • Recent studies suggest eating high-pesticide produce can affect fertility

All adults and children should eat more fruits and vegetables, whether they are organic or conventionally grown. With EWG’s 2018 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™, you can choose healthy produce while minimizing unwanted doses of multiple toxic pesticides.

Many shoppers don’t realize that pesticide residues are common on conventionally grown produce, even after it is carefully washed or peeled. EWG’s analysis of the most recent tests by the Department of Agriculture found that nearly 70 percent of samples of conventionally grown produce were contaminated with pesticide residues.

The USDA tests found a total of 230 different pesticides and pesticide breakdown products on the thousands of produce samples analyzed. EWG’s analysis of the tests shows that there are stark differences among various types of produce. The Shopper’s Guide lists the Dirty Dozen™ fruits and vegetables with the most pesticide residues, and the Clean Fifteen™, for which few, if any, residues were detected.
