The Clean Bin Project
March 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$5.59
Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning, festival favorite, 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.
Council Member Jack Smith, Council Liaison to the Town of Cary’s citizen Environmental Advisory Board, will introduce the film and brief remarks from experts will put our region in context.
An after-film panel will explore the topic and challenge attendees to make simple changes at home to reduce their own waste.
