Jeremy Irons, Trashed

Synopsis

In Trashed, Jeremy Irons sets out to discover the extent and effects of the global waste problem, as he travels around the world to beautiful destinations tainted by pollution. This meticulous, brave investigative journey takes him (and us) from skepticism to sorrow and from horror to hope.

The beauty of our planet from space forms a violent contrast to the scenes of human detritus across the globe. Vast landscaped in China are covered in tons of rubbish. The wide waters of the Ciliwung River in Indonesia are now barely visible under a never-ending tide of plastic. Children swim among leaking bags; mothers wash in the sewage-filled supply. Each year, we now throw away fifty-eight billion disposable cups, billions of plastic bags, 200 billion liters of water bottles, billions of tons of household waste, toxic waste and e-waste. http://www.trashedfilm.com
