This film isn’t about our waste problem, it’s about solutions–and they are everywhere!  We live in a challenging time: climate change and mass consumption are threatening our planet’s existence. Excessive extraction of natural resources has created immeasurable waste and pollution; this issue is complicated and imminent.  While recognition and awareness are important, direct action is by far the most effective.  Traditional recycling is not enough.  The reuse mission offers a more sustainable solution that everyone can be a part of!

 ‘REUSE Because You Can’t Recycle The Planet’ follows re-use pro, Alex Eaves’, cross-country adventure to the 48 contiguous U.S. states.  On his journey, he finds endless reuse solutions for our waste problem that are not only sustainable, but many of which are easy and fun and he learns just how reuse truly benefits people, planet, and wallet.

Q&A after with 2 prominent panelist from the waste industry – Amy Hammes & Richard Ludt.

Amy Hammes is the Recycling Specialist for the City of Burbank and Richard Ludt is the Director of Environmental Affairs at IRS and a board member of USGBC-LA.
