Storyline

The Clean Bin Project is about a regular couple and their quest to answer the question 'is it possible to live completely waste free?' Partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a comedic battle to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least amount of garbage in an entire year. Their light-hearted competition is set against a compelling examination of the sobering problem of waste in our 'throw-away' society. Featuring interviews with renowned artist and TED lecturer, Chris Jordan and marine pollution expert, Captain Charles Moore, The Clean Bin Project presents the serious topic of waste reduction with optimism, humor, and inspiration for individual action.

Everyone should see it
3 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

I loved this film! Everyone should see it, in schools, work and at home. It was not only hilarious, but changed my life. We are now striving to be garbage free like Grant and Jenn. It was a very interesting film to watch as they progressed from "what the hell are we doing" to "this is easy, lets continue". I hear they are working on another film, can't wait to see it. I love the relationship dynamic between Jenn and Grant, what a great couple to have produced this film. I wish they would create an outtakes film from what didn't make the cut, I'm sure it would be outstanding. The fact that the film is set in Vancouver, Canada is great as I live here, but it shows how living garbage free in a big city can be easy, or have its challenges, whichever way you look at it.
