Civilization’s waste threatens our planet's life support systems. Working toward zero waste on the west coast, communities recycle over 70% while here on the island we recycle less than half that sum. Tabling by community partners and a post-event panel discussion with Q&A will bring together the community to inspire a conversation around how we can do better.
In this multi award-winning film, Jeremy Irons looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste pollution. This film shows how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current ‘waste industry’.
