Sarnia Justice Film Festival

The next film in the Sarnia Justice Film Festival is The Clean Bin Project: Trying to Live a Waste-Free Life. It plays on Saturday, February 20 at 7pm.

This series runs at the Sarnia Library, and it's free of charge. 

Here's a brief description of the film: 

"Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning film 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”.  This film will prove to be a fun and inspiring call to individual action to deal with the waste we produce."

Dr. Kate Parizeau (Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Guelph) and Mary Jean O’Donnell (President of MJ Waste Solutions) will lead a conversation afterwards about waste in our everyday lives. 

The Sarnia Justice Film Festival has two more films scheduled after this one:

March 12- Oil and Water: A film about searching for a more just future for all people around the world born with oil beneath their feet

April 23- Madina's Dream: A film about rebels and refugees fighting to survive in Sudan's Nuba Mountains
