The Juice Truck and I are very excited to announce our next Mindful Movie Night, which will feature The Clean Bin Project, co-hosted by the eco-conscious team behind Canada’s very first (and soon-to-open) Zero Waste Market. Founders Brianne Miller and Paula Amiama, along with intern extraordinaire Alison Carr, have chosen our flick and they’ll be joining us to chat about the zero waste lifestyle — they’ll also be offering zero waste movie snacks.
In observance of our soiree’s theme, we ask that guests bring their own non-disposable containers, cups and napkins for the movie snacks. We’d also like to encourage moviegoers to bike, walk, carpool or take public transportation to the event!
ABOUT THE FILM
“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 garbageTheir 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.” Read more here: cleanbinmovie.com
