Event Details


For a Year, They Bought Nothing and Threw Away Zilch

Now Canadian Filmmakers are 'Talking Trash' in the UK with

their documentary: The Clean Bin Project


What started as a personal challenge - a household competition to see who could produce the least amount of garbage - has become a multi-award winning movie that is coming “home” to the UK this August.  Director Grant Baldwin was born in Brighton and immigrated to Canada as a child in the 80's. He and his partner, Producer Jenny Rustemeyer, are bringing their film The Clean Bin Project to Brighton on 23rd August for the launch of an exclusive 5-day tour.


The Clean Bin Project is a refreshingly comedic documentary about a regular couple and their quest to answer the question "is it possible to live completely waste free?" Partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a battle to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least landfill garbage in an entire year. Their light-hearted competition to refuse, reduce and recycle their way to the smallest garbage bin is set against a darker examination of the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society”. Marine pollution expert Captain Charles Moore describes the pacific garbage patch, an island of plastic twice the size of Texas currently floating in the Pacific Ocean; and Seattle-based artist Chris Jordan shares shocking images that portray the large-scale impacts of our 'throw away' society. The result is a beautifully shot film that speaks to audiences of all ages, inspiring action without being preachy, and providing solid ideas for reducing garbage at home.


"We had watched a lot of environmental films that were really informative, but we always felt so overwhelmed and deflated at the end of them," explains Grant, "we wanted to make a movie that showed how choosing to do just one thing, like reducing your trash, can be not only manageable, but really empowering and fun."
