About the Film
Trashed, an award-winning documentary, follows Jeremy Irons (The Borgias; Die Hard: With a Vengeance) as he 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 is a meticulous, brave investigative journey that takes Irons (and us) from scepticism to sorrow and from horror to hope.

"We hope the film will demonstrate that by changing the way we live our lives, we can contribute to our own survival and well-being and ultimately that of the planet." - Jeremy Irons

Zero Waste Washington
Donations for Zero Waste Washington will be accepted at the event.
Zero Waste Washington is championing a responsible and comprehensive approach to the “stuff” we use and the resources that go into making it. We have been the catalyst for breakthrough waste prevention and recycling programs and policies in Washington for over 30 years.
Think it's not our problem?
Since 1991, Seattle's trash travels about 320 miles by train to a landfill in Eastern Oregon.
The train is a mile-long and double-stacked. If you were to lay out the containers consecutively, that is
more than 11 times the height of the Columbia Tower!
We produce enough trash that the train runs 6 days per week, 52 weeks per year and carries an estimated 18 million pounds of waste each trip.
