Racing to Zero Screening at UC Berkeley


UC Berkeley's Student Environmental Resource Center, Student Team on Zero Waste and Plastic (STOP), and Telegraph Green present Racing to Zero

Thursday, November 19, 7:30pm
155 Kroeber Hall, UC Berkeley, California
Post-screening discussion

The film screening is co-sponsored by SERC, STOP, and Telegraph Green for Cal Zero Waste Week!

Only one third of the waste in the United Stated is recycled or composted. Why? Industry, through its practice of planned obsolescence, plays a major role; our lives are almost totally dependent on unrecyclable petroleum products. In order to reach zero waste, we need to change our relationship to garbage and view the things we discard as resources, rather than waste.

RACING TO ZERO examines today’s cultural garbage practices in terms of consumption, preparation, use and production, and discovers some amazing solutions in San Francisco, which is successfully taking the necessary steps to reach zero waste. Cities all over the United States have instituted zero-waste policies of their own, and it is through these mandates that we are challenged to think differently about not only how we handle our garbage, but what it can become.

STOP will facilitate a short discussion following the film.
