Waste

Food and packaging waste is not simply something that ‘goes away’ when we pop it in the rubbish bin for collection by our garbos. Waste has an insidious, long-term impact on our environment, our wildlife and ultimately our own health. But how do we avoid it? In an age of excess consumption and a mindset of convenience-at-all-cost, is it possible to truly be waste free?

Delve into the world of waste and zero waste living with our online short documentary, Waste Deep.

The free-to-watch documentary shows how food and plastic waste can be avoided, drawing attention to much of the unnecessary packaging that is choking our lives, oceans and animals. It also gives an insight into the environmental and social impacts of our wasteful ways.

The film features some pretty rad people such as environmentalist and keen surfer Tim Silverwood, blogger, author and TV presenter Sarah Wilson and exuberant host of ABC's Gardening Australia, Costa Georgiadis.

We couldn't have done this without the generosity of the aforementioned folk, as well as the special people below:

Mathery Studios, our supremely talented videographers.
Jack Johnson and All At Once, for selecting us as one of their supported charities and matching donations made to our Pozible campaign up to $2,500USD.

And these incredible organisations for also featuring their lovely faces:
Second Bite
Take 3
Port Phillip Council
Spade & Barrow
Buy Nothing New Month

A special mention is also warranted of all of the generous people who supported our Pozible campaign, we are eternally grateful and could not have created this documentary without you.

When we dump rubbish at the tip (landfill) polluting greenhouse gases (methane) are released. This happens when food and green waste rots under mountains of other rubbish. This puts more energy into our atmosphere and is starting to affect our climate. For every wheelie bin we fill at school and home there are another 70 wheelie bins full of waste that we never see. It’s already been tossed out before it gets to us. How can we create less waste?
