Quotes

[first lines]
Jeremy Irons: From space, it's hard to see any evidence of mankind on Earth, or the effects we're having on our planet's finite resources. From up here, it looks perfect. It's only when we look more closely that we start to see some of the results of our consumption; particularly the one that's rarely talked about: waste.

A compelling documentary on waste
22 August 2013 | by sophie-brookesSee all my reviews

An eye opening and grimly compelling documentary on waste with an inspired choice of guide in Jeremy Irons. This film will make you seriously consider your lifestyle and dietary choice by radically changing your attitude to waste. The film fully documents the alternatives to landfill and incineration, as well as shocking you into wondering why the alternatives haven't been fully explored or implemented. The films contains a great deal of information and statistics, making it very educational and informative and a film everyone should watch. I sincerely recommend Trashed-it's a real eye-opener! If you think you're protected by environmental legislation, think again...
