Partners Jen and Grant go head-to-head in a battle to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least amount of garbage in a year. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of waste in North American society, and the duo struggles to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale impacts of our “throw-away society.”
Featuring interviews with renowned environmental artist Chris Jordan and marine pollution expert Captain Charles Moore, The Clean Bin Project presents the serious topic of waste reduction with optimism, humour and inspiration for individual action.
