REUSE! Because You Can’t Recycle the Planet – Film Screening & Discussion
May 11, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20 – $35
The Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board invites you to a screening of:
This film isn’t about our waste problem. It’s about solutions. And they are everywhere!
We live in a challenging time. Climate change and mass consumption is threatening our planet’s existence. Excessive extraction of natural resources has created immeasurable waste and pollution. This issue is complicated and imminent. While recognition and awareness is important, direct action is by far the most effective. But traditional recycling is not enough. The reuse mission offers a more sustainable solution that everyone can be a part of. REUSE! Because You Can’t Recycle The Planet follows Reuse Pro Alex Eaves’ cross-country adventure to the 48 contiguous U.S. states. On his journey, he finds endless reuse solutions for our waste problem that are not only sustainable, but many of which are easy and fun! And he learns just how reuse truly benefits “people, planet, and wallet.”
Following the film, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A.
Proceeds from this screening will go towards future MSWAB initiatives, such as the Annual Community-Scale Composting Grants to provide funding assistance for community, small-scale organic waste diversion initiatives across the city.
