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.

We can live comfortably without producing much waste.
2 March 2012 | by Tom MurraySee all my reviews

The film shows that people can live comfortably, without acquiring much material destined for the ever-diminishing supply of landfills. A couple competed to see how little waste each could acquire in one year. During the year, they had to discover where they could purchase things that were not packaged and avoid things that were. Each collected about one waste-basketful. How much do you collect in a year? It informs us of the billions of pop cans discarded by Americans in one year and the huge numbers of other common items.

The devastation created in the oceans, because of plastic waste, is also shown. On Midway Island, thousands of miles from the mainland, adult albatrosses fed in the ocean and then fed their babies. The stomachs of the babies became full of plastic and they died. This could result in the extinction of many species if we continue to despoil the oceans.

I rated the film 8 out of 10 because it does educate the public about the danger of waste material created by man.
