WMEAC Film Series: Trashed

Tomorrow, the West Michigan Environmental Action Council (WMEAC) will be showing the award winning documentary, Trashed at Celebration Cinema North as part of the ongoing WMEAC Film Series. Trashed is a feature film that examines what modern American’s consider “waste” and looks at the way our nation holds a blind eye to both where our trash goes and the ramifications that trash has on the world.

At the film showing, Clothing Matters, a local environmentally friendly retailer, will be giving away 10 Sling Packs made 100% from recycled water bottles to illustrate how what some consider trash can be fully recycled and put to future use. Attendees can register for the drawing at the door, where they will purchase tickets, and names will be drawn randomly.

The WMEAC Film Series, in it’s fifth year, is centered around bringing environmentally focused films to West Michigan. These films are often paired with a panel discussion to further explore the topic of the film with local advocates and scholars. This season the WMEAC Film Series will also show Gasland 2 January 21st, 2014 at UICA, Chasing Ice February 18th, 2014 at UICA, and The Last Crop, March 18th at UICA.

There is a $5 suggested donation for tickets to the film.
