The Guardian: "Jeremy Irons talks trash for his new environmental documentary"

Link to web site and video

"Jeremy Irons, the Oscar-winning actor, has teamed up with the British filmmaker Candida Brady to produce a new feature-length documentary called Trashed. It 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".

"Ahead of its first theatrical screenings in the US later this month, Irons answered my questions about the film via email...
... [Question] "The film talks about that much-used term - 'zero waste'. How close can we ever realistically get to that goal? What's more important to tackle at present: reducing our waste stream, or adopting more sensible ways to manage/dispose of our waste?"

  1. I've watched this film on DVD and it is one of the clearest, most complete accounts of the effect our lifestyle has on the world today. Jeremy connects with top scientists, stats, community movers and shakers in an easy, non preachy and digestible way. It's a must see, leaving one with the feeling this is a problem that is solvable and we all have a part to play. Brilliant!
