ECO & SUMASA Film Screening “Trashed” – Thursday, April 18th

Join SUMASA and ECO (The SIPA Environmental Coalition) for a screening of the film "Trashed" on Thursday, April 18th at 8:15pm in Room 407 IAB! “Trashed” is a provocative investigation of one of the fastest growing industries in North America. The garbage business. The film examines a fundamental element of modern American culture…the disposal of what our society defines as “waste.” It is an issue influenced by every American, most of whom never consider the consequences. Nor, it seems, the implications to our biosphere. At times humorous, but deeply poignant, “Trashed” examines the American waste stream fast approaching a half billion tons annually.
