Do you know what really happens to your rubbish once you've thrown it in the bin? If you're like most people, then not really. There are 7 billion people on the planet today and we are creating more garbage than ever. What's more, the garbage that we produce today is nowhere near as eco friendly as it was 100 years ago. How long can we keep throwing things away without taking responsibility for the consequences?

Jeremy Irons, who is the narrator in Trashed, takes us on a journey around the world to find out what happens to our rubbish. From the slums of Indonesia and the 40 meter high mountain of rubbish in Lebanon polluting the Mediterranean Sea, to San Francisco, USA, where it is a legal requirement for every single citizen, even visitors, to recycle and sort their the rubbish. Britain, who sports the most landfill sites in Europe, isn't forgotten either. We get the cold hard facts, the numbers and the consequences to health and livelihood people are already suffering. It's a sobering experience.

Set to epic music by Vangelis, the opening scenes of Trashed are, rightly so, apocalyptic. Trashed gives us the facts that our Governments seem to want to keep from us. It's shocking, it's informative and it's, beyond all, a call to action. With her film, Candida Brady shows us that change is now urgent and, more importantly, also very much possible.
