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 all do out bit to help with producing less waste
30 July 2018 | by sophiekaragSee all my reviews

I watched this film as i was interested to see how they would do it and who would win :) (my bet was on Jenny). It was so good to see the challenges they faced. I wouldn't have thought how hard it can be. We don't think of the everyday products we use like creams and toothpaste. After watching the film i went to my fridge and Cupboards and realised that everything has packaging and I was contributing to producing a lot of waste. From the strawberries i bought the other day that's in plastic to the cheese and meat! I was shocked to come to that realisation and vowed to start taking responsibility in what I buy and from where. It was a great inspiration to see the film and has helped me see waste in a very different way. Also I now feel guilty using the rest of the plastic bags i have for the bin. Highly recommend this film as a starting point.
