Clean Ocean Access is excited to present a film screening of "Wasted! The Story of Food Waste" at Jane Pickens Theater on Monday, April 1st. It may be April Fools, but food waste is no joke!
An informative and entertaining documentary produced by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, "Wasted!" takes audiences around the world, showing the 1.3 billion tons of food that gets thrown out each year and the people fighting hardest to prevent it. In Rhode Island alone, about 100,000 tons of food waste ends up in the Central Landfill, which is expected to reach capacity by 2034. Still no joke!

To address the issue of food waste and marine debris in our Ocean State, Clean Ocean Access has launched a new composting project, Healthy Soils, Healthy Seas Rhode Island (HSHSRI), that seeks to improve ocean health by inspiring environmentally responsible behavior on land. In partnership with local composting groups, The Compost Plant, Aquidneck Community Table and Rhodeside Revival, HSHSRI hopes to inspire residents to take a closer look at their waste footprints and reevaluate the low-and-no-value items that end up in the landfill, or worse in our ocean.
HSHSRI members receive a $5 discount on 1 movie ticket! Just enter your unique 5-digit customer number as the promotional code upon check-out.
