Remember back in October we shared the Just Eat It documentary about food waste? One fellow blogger (Nadine from Zero Journey) let us know they were the creators of this docu about consumerism and waste (which I hadn’t seen it back then). So, highly recommended if you are starting a zero-waste journey!
“Is it possible to live completely waste free? 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 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”. Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery. 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.”

Yes! This docu was a huge part of my journey. I’ve shared it with many teachers and students, and it has been so effective. Thanks for sharing!
