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 garbage Their 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.

Yes DVDs Are "Stuff"

Yes DVD's are "stuff". If you're adverse to buying them, go for a digital option. But if you are keen have a physical DVD so you can watch all the special features and pass it around to a few friends, we won't stop you. We just got a new shipment of DVDs, and we're stoked that they have even less packaging than our previous version - this one doesn't open up, it's just a cardboard sleeve. Hope you like it!


The Clean Bin Project is Heading to the UK!

We're excited to announce that this August The Clean Bin Project will be heading to the UK for a 5 city film tour! It's a little known fact that Grant is a dual citizen; he was born in Brighton, England and moved to Canada as a kid in the 80's, so this feels like a bit of a homecoming. We are, appropriately, kicking off in Brighton.

If you are in the UK or know anyone who lives in England, let them know that we're on our way!
