ABOUT THE MOVIE:
“Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning, festival favourite, 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.”
ABOUT RONCY REDUCES:
Roncy Reduces is a community initiative. Our goal is to reduce single-use plastics and packaging in our neighbourhood by encouraging both consumers and businesses to practice waste reduction together.
Much of the plastic we use can be avoided. One easy way for everyone to do their part is to minimize single-use plastic by using reusable containers such as coffee cups, water bottles, string bags for produce, cloth bags for bread and bulk food, reusable containers for takeout food and deli items such as meat and cheese or a reusable shopping bag.
We are inviting neighbourhood businesses to participate in this initiative by displaying our Roncy Reduces sticker at the door and accepting customers’ reusable containers whenever possible.
