RACING TO ZERO will bring a new perspective to the garbage problem confronting the world today and the growing
threat that this imposes on the environment itself. For more than a year we have been actively researching the damaging affect of human waste on the environment, how to explain what is happening and the steps being taken to find solutions.
Americans are still prodigious wasters and in 2009 threw out roughly 243 million tons of trash or about 4.34 pounds of garbage per person per day…and 132 million tons ended up in landfill.
Our 60 minute documentary is an awakening and an admonition and we are the targeted audience. The original title, TRASH24, has now morphed into RACING TO ZERO which suggests a better operating framework for the questions that we are asking and the solutions being implemented by specific cities. Can we achieve the eventual goal, ZERO garbage to landfill in the foreseeable future? Everyone is involved and the pressure is on. How much time do we have?
