Earth Matters youth to host screening of The Clean Bin Project in Nelson

The Earth Matters Zero Waste Youth Project is proud to host the screening of The Clean Bin Project.

The film screening will take place on January 28 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Nelson and District Youth Centre. Admission is free and snacks will be provided. (Note: skateboard ramps will NOT be open.)

The Clean Bin Project is an award-winning documentary about a Vancouver couple who attempt to go “waste and consumer-free” for a whole year.  The event will also include a lively discussion, marking the beginning of the next phase of the Earth Matters Upcyclers Project.

The Earth Matters Upcyclers Project is open to all Nelson and area youth age 13 to 30, who are interested in learning more about waste reduction, sewing, blogging, leadership skills and resource recovery in the community. It will begin with weekly meetings, discussions and workshops starting in February.

Earth Matters is a program of Nelson CARES Society.  This project is made possible with support from Columbia Basin Trust, Regional District of Central Kootenay, Nelson and District Credit Union, BC Hydro, TD Bank and the Nelson Lions Club.

For more information about the film night or the Earth Matters Upcyclers, contact Heather or Sarah at 250-352-6011, ext 17, or email youth@nelsoncares.ca.
