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.

Fundraisers and Festivals

After a fabulous Earth Week with visits to Science World, skype Q and A’s with Toronto high schools, and a trip to Victoria and Campbell River, we’re heading south. That’s right, we’re going to the US of A. May 4th will see us in Portland, Oregon, kicking off our theatrical run at The Clinton Street Theater. Opening night will be a fundraiser for the Portland Surfrider Chapter, so get ready for sweet raffle prizes from local companies – they remind you not to forget to bring cash.

Tickets are just $7. More information is at http://www.facebook.com/events/268651013218104/ If you miss opening night, never fear, The Clean Bin Project will be screening at 7pm and 9pm May 5-9th (we just won’t be there in person for those ones).

On Sunday May 6th, we’re excited to be part of the Seattle True Independent Film Festival which celebrates westcoast films that are truly independent (but still awesome!) Info is at http://www.trueindependent.org/

See you there!


Bend Again!

We're excited to be back in Bend, Oregon for an encore screening. We visited a school this morning, and the kids had tons of great questions. We even signed a few autographs and talked to some aspiring filmmakers abotu which cameras we liked.

Honestly, this is one of our all time favorite towns. People are so nice, the buildings are lovely, and landscape is gorgeous. Add to that a great local culture of restaurants, sports, and entertainment, and we're pretty sure we'd be happy to live down here permenantly.

Earth week is coming up next week, so we'll be hitting Vancouver, Burnaby, and Vancouver Island with screenings. Hope to see you there!


Victoria to Montreal 

We have a bunch of screenings this month leading up to April (Earth Month). We'll be visiting a number of screenings in person including Victoria and Montreal, a place that we haven't visited since we cycled across the country in 2010.

Obviously we can't be at every single event, but I've updated the calendar so now it's clear which screenings we will be at by the little * beside the title.

Stay tuned for Earth Month news!
