The Last Straw
‘The Last Straw’ is a funny and informative video project about the impact of single-use plastics on our oceans.
Weatherhead’s Eco Club joined students from five secondary schools across the Wirral for a day of filming to raise awareness of single-use plastics, why they are a problem and what we each can each do to help.
The film tells the story of an unlikely hero, ‘Ceebs’, and his journey from oblivious consumer to awakened activist via a fantastic encounter in an underwater dystopia using drama, cartoon and CGI graphics.
Filmmaking took place at Wallasey Town Hall with eco students from Hilbre High School, St Anselm’s College, Upton Hall School FCJ, Weatherhead High School, West Kirby Grammar School and Woodchurch High School.
The finished film, which had its premiere at Royden Park on World Environment Day, is testament to the students’ creativity, teamwork and commitment to raising awareness of the impact single-use plastics have on the environment around us.
