RACING TO ZERO, IN PURSUIT OF ZERO WASTE (USA, 2014, 57 min.) Washington, D.C. Premiere
Garbage, vanishing natural resources, destroyed oceans: the environment doesn't stand a chance against society's bad habits. Is there anything that we, individually, can still do? San Francisco's mayor has pledged to achieve zero waste in his city by 2020. Following this city's trail of trash with Robert Haley, San Francisco's Zero Waste Manager, Racing to Zero presents solutions to these global problems while making extraordinary new discoveries that may change the future of consumption. Directed by Christopher Beaver. Produced by Diana Fuller.

Panel discussion, moderated by Robert Engelman, Senior Fellow, Environment and Society Program, Worldwatch Institute, follows screening. Panelists: Keya Chatterjee, Executive Director, U.S. Climate Action Network and author of The Zero Impact Baby: How to Save the Planet While Raising a Healthy Baby; Jim Schulman, Founder, Sustainable Community Initiatives and Community Forklift, LLC and Neil Seldman, Founder and Senior Waste to Wealth Program staff member, Institute for Local Self-Reliance.
