Sustainable Long Island's Film Screening Series

Save the date!
On Tuesday, September 29, 2015, inside Alumnae Hall-Room 230B at Adelphi University, Sustainable Long Island will present an exclusive screening of Racing To Zero - a quick-moving, upbeat documentary presenting new solutions to the global problem of waste.

By simply substituting the word RESOURCE for the word GARBAGE, a culture can be transformed and a new wealth of industries can emerge.

Three years ago, the mayor of San Francisco pledged to achieve zero waste by 2020. Racing to Zero tracks San Francisco's waste stream diversion tactics and presents innovative new solutions to waste. This film documents a surprising, engaging and inspiring race to zero.

Stay tuned for more information...

"Trash. Garbage. Junk." These are words we commonly call the things we throw away. But in San Francisco they have a completely different perspective. They see "waste" as "resources," materials that can always be recycled and turned into new things. They give purpose to the stuff most people may see as otherwise useless. Dedicated to protecting the environment, they're aiming to make the city 100% waste free by 2020. It sounds like a daunting goal, but as this film reveals, they're surprisingly close to doing so.

Now, you may wonder how exciting can a documentary on trash be? The short answer is very. The city's passion for going green is unbelievably contagious. For everyone from the mayor, to those who work in the field, to the citizens - the idea of ensuring everything can be reused has reached a collective fever pitch. Their mission has given them a sense of pride that's overwhelmingly inspiring. The innovative methods and programs displayed in Racing To Zero provide a blueprint for change that can hopefully be applied to all of America.
