The Clean Bin Project

Sustainable North Grenville presents…

A Summer Movie Series

Over the summer months Sustainable North Grenville will be showing a series of three documentary movies on the second Monday of each month at the branch restaurant.

The series kicks off on June 11th with “The Clean Bin Project”; an award-winning Canadian documentary movie about kicking the garbage habit. In a world where our resources are finite, can we afford to be so wasteful? Over packaged stuff, single-use items, planned obsolescence; is it possible to change our materialistic ways and live waste-free?

“The Clean Bin Project” follows partners Jen and Grant as they go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage in an entire year. Their light-hearted battle is set against a darker examination of the sobering problem of waste in North America. Even as Grant and Jen start to garner interest in their project, they struggle to find meaning in their seemingly miniscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society”

Come and see how this engaging couple try to go for one year without buying material goods or producing any garbage. Their humour will engage you and their optimism will inspire you to take action for yourself and your family.

Sustainable North Grenville’s events are open to everyone; we’re a friendly bunch!  An optional buffet and coffee, tea and sweets are available by donation, plus a cash bar. Bring a friend along, relax and enjoy the show –  Monday, June 11th at 6.30pm for 7pm start at the branch restaurant. We look forward to seeing you there!

Remember to mark your calendars for the next two movie nights: July 9th and August 13th
