Aspen, CO –March 24, 2014– The public is invited to a free screening of “Trashed”, an award-winning documentary narrated by Jeremy Irons on Wednesday, March 26 at 7 p.m. at the Wheeler Opera House.  The film examines the global waste crisis and explores the source of the problem as well as the environmental impacts.  Irons travels the world and discovers how waste is threatening human health as well as the problems associated with waste incineration and the growing concentration of plastic in the ocean.  The film ends with a message of hope, that we can all do something to stop the problem.

 

Waste Free Roaring Fork is committed to solving the problem in the community. In addition to the film, the group is teaming up with Aspen Sports to promote a Snow Sports Recycling Program and One for the Mountain. On Wednesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 27th, used skis, snowboards, ski boots, snowboard boots, poles and helmets can be recycled. Drop off your gear at 408 E. Cooper Ave. (Aspen Sports on the pedestrian mall) from 8am until 6pm. For more information visit Snowsrp.org.
