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.

Clean Bin Tour Day 5

 

Let me tell you, I've driven that hill out of Hope on Hwy 3 many a time, but I never fully realized what a frickin' HUGE hill it is!  Grant and I spent a quality 6 and a half hours on it yesterday, and it was nothing short of painful.

The highlight of the day was meeting a couple of lovely lady cyclists from Hope who were out for a day trip and were able to tell us which campsite was best and where to expect the worst hills (and nicest flat sections) on the road ahead. One of them even recognized us from the news!

We managed to get a good 10 hours of sleep in the tent last night, making today's ride to Princeton much faster and easier than yesterday's journey.  We've still got a couple days before we hit Osoyoos (tell your friends to come out on the 9th!), but here's a great photo that Grant's uncle took of the Q&A during Mission screening.
