[ARCHIVED] Coming Soon: Sustainability Film Series Presents "Trashed"


If you think waste is someone else’s problem, think again.

“Trashed” is a groundbreaking documentary examining the crisis of trash, highlighting how garbage threatens our health and our environment.

Join us to see “Trashed” for free as our Sustainability Film Series returns Jan. 30, 2014. The event will be from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Issaquah High School Performing Arts Center, 700 Second Ave. S.E. Come early to speak with exhibitors and get a good seat.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion of local experts, including King County EcoConsumer Tom Watson.

Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons sets out on a worldwide investigation into our global garbage problem. Using Irons as a guide, filmmaker Candida Brady’s “Trashed” follows him on a journey around the planet to illustrate the scale of the challenge we face.

More importantly, “Trashed” also carries a hopeful message about how communities around the world are already working to address the problem. You’ll also learn important lessons about how we can protect our vital natural resources through sustainable solutions.

Some images may not be suitable for young children.

The free movie nights are presented by the City of Issaquah’s Office of Sustainability and funded in part through a grant from the King County Local Hazardous Waste Management Program. To learn more, visit or call 425-837-3400.
