Monday 20 May, 8pm (7pm drinks), Depot Cinema, £9 (£4 concs)
Join in the launch of the Plastic Free Lewes Pledge with a special screening of the award-winning documentary ‘Trashed’, a panel discussion with the film’s director and the premiere of the Plastic Free Lewes Pledge film.
On Monday 20 May, the Plastic Free Lewes Pledge is officially launched – inviting individuals, businesses, schools and other organisations across Lewes to cut down on single-use plastic, one of the biggest contributors to global plastic pollution. You can sign up to the pledge online from the start of May at plasticfreelewes.org.
To mark the launch, Plastic Free Lewes is hosting a screening of the powerful documentary ‘Trashed’ at Depot Cinema. Trashed follows actor Jeremy Irons as he explores the scale and impact of consumerism and man-made pollution around the world – looking at the realities and repercussions of how we deal with what we throw away, from landfill to incineration to sea-dumping, and exploring the solutions to our addiction to waste.
The evening will include a Q&A with Candida Brady, writer, director and co-producer of ‘Trashed’ and Cat Fletcher, co-founder of Freegle UK (and recently named 2019’s Legend of Waste by Resource magazine, pipping Sir David Attenborough to second place!).
You’ll also get to see the first screening of the Plastic Free Lewes Pledge film featuring familiar faces and businesses across Lewes pledging to cut down on single-use plastic.
