14-year-old filmmaker Dylan D'Haeze explores how communities can develop zero waste strategies and looks at building a sustainable lifestyle for today and for future generations.
Beginning with the Industrial Revolution, advances in technological innovation lead to large population booms which have lead to intense harvesting of environmental resources faster than they can be regenerated. More waste builds up as more resources are burned through, and pollutants from that waste infect the very earth we use for resources.
But hope can be found in the form of sustainable living. Whether it's something small like recycling or going meat free for a day, the film covers the various forms of sustainability on an individual level.
Once you watch this documentary, you'll gain a better understanding about how everything we do affects the planet. And how the actions of others are affecting your life. It shows kids how everything we do in our daily lives affects the planet, and how we can change our habits to help save the planet and have a sustainable future. Kids can make a difference!
