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!

"14-year-old filmmaker Dylan D'Haeze, shares his passion for the environment in the video Everything Connects and guides the viewers' awareness regarding people's impact on the earth and all the 'stuff' people use, consume, and throw away. Everything Connects shares useful and inspiring information on sustainability, including recycling and composting...Everything Connects is best suited for ages 10 to adult and is the third video in D'Haeze's Kids Can Save the Planet series."

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The Kids Can Save the Planet videos stand out from the growing list of children's books and films about saving the earth on several levels. Among other strengths, D'Haeze's very sincere and positive narration offers a source of inspiration for kids to change the earth."
- Science Books & Films
"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I was intrigued by this film because it clearly illustrates in a short time frame the connection between us and the condition of our ever changing planet by the destructive things we do on a daily basis with little or no consideration of the impending consequences on our well-being and the environment."
