"Trashed" is a provocative investigation of one of the
fastest growing industries in North America. The garbage business. The
film examines a fundamental element of modern American culture...the
disposal of what our society defines as "waste." It is an issue influenced
by every American, most of whom never consider the consequences. Nor, it
seems, the implications to our biosphere. At times humorous, but deeply
poignant, "Trashed" examines the American waste stream fast approaching a
half billion tons annually.
What are the effects all this waste will have on already
strained natural resources? Why is so much of it produced? While every
American creates almost 5 pounds of it every day, who is affected most?
And who wants America to make more?
The film analyzes the causes and effects of the
seemingly innocuous act of "taking out the garbage" while showcasing the
individuals, activists,corporate and advocacy groups working to affect
change and reform the current model. "Trashed" is an informative and
thought-provoking film everyone interested in the future of sustainability
