Is it possible to live completely waste free? Find out by attending our first documentary film screening of the year, presented by Fernwood NRG in partnership with the Compost Education Centre.
Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super-Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery. In this multi-award winning festival favourite, partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem of waste. Even as Grant and Jen start to garner interest in their project, they struggle to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society.” Captivating interviews with renowned artist Chris Jordan and TED lecturer Captain Charles Moore make this film a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.
The filmmakers will be at the screening to give the back story of the film and to answer questions. They’ll also be giving us a sneak peek at their new film, Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story coming out later this year.
