Description

We are delighted to announce a very special film screening of the award winning film The Clean Bin Project and follow up author talk with Erin Rhoads and her new book Waste Not.

The Clean Bin Project

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.

Erin Rhoads Waste Not Author Talk

Erin Rhoads is the curious lady behind The Rogue Ginger, one of Australia's popular eco lifestyle websites. She has been been writing about her own journey since 2013 sharing how she reduced plastic and her rubbish, leading to a happier and healthier life. Through Erin's pursuit to live plastic-free and zero-waste, she learnt to eat real food, discovered new skills, cut down her exposure to harmful chemicals, found joy in moments over things and simplified her life, while saving money.

A sought-after writer and speaker, Erin is on a mission to engage with individuals to redefine what is waste and how we can create less of it. She was a consultant on ABCs War on Waste; shares skills and practical help to hundreds at workshops, talks and forums; helps organise and assist environmental action groups and founded Zero Waste Victoria and Plastic Bag Free Victoria.

Erin will be introducing the film The Clean Bin project and also talking about her new book Waste Not. In Waste Not she shares everything she’s learnt from her own funny, inspiring – and far-from-perfect – journey to living with less waste.
