Seen at BendFilm: The Clean Bin Project

A review of The Clean Bin Project, which screened at BendFilm.

I just returned from the Old Mill Regal 16 where The Clean Bin Project just screened to a mostly full auditorium for BendFilm. In a word, the film is impacting.

The documentary, starring and produced by Grant Baldwin and Jen Rustmeyer, follows the Canadian couple as they try to spend a year generating next to no waste. They can't buy anything besides food and try not to use anything that can't be recycled or composted.

When I met friends for lunch after the film, I looked at the straw from my drink and felt pretty damn bad about it. I wouldn't have thought of this before, but the film definitely makes you ponder all the waste you generate.

I sat down with Grant and Jen last night and we talked a bit about the film and their insane year, which has led to some major changes in their lives. If you get a chance to say hi to these folks tonight around town, do it -- they're incredibly interesting people. The film screens again tomorrow at 1:30pm at the Sisters Movie House.

Here's a look.
