Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning documentary, 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”. Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop-motion animations, and unforgettable imagery. This film is a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.
