As populations grow, it seems inevitable for the amount of waste produced to do anything but get larger as well.

However, San Fransisco is attempting to make its waste do the opposite.

On April 21, the Campbell River Youth Action Committee will be hosting this year’s annual Earth Week Film Festival.

Taking the spotlight will be the film Racing to Zero.

In 2013, the city of San Fransisco took a pledge to achieve zero waste by 2020. Racing to Zero gives us a look at what it takes to attempt to reach for a goal that almost seems unattainable in today’s society.

The Campbellton Neighbourhood Association’s short film documenting the new Campbellton Community Garden will also be playing.

This will give a snapshot of efforts taking place in our own city and bring the importance of protecting the environment back home.

The Earth Week Film Fest is on April 21 and is taking place at the Tidemark Theatre.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m.

Admission is by donation and the funds received will go towards an Environmental Bursary presented to graduating students looking to get into an environmentally conscious area of study.

The Youth Action Committee is excited about the possibilities for this year’s Earth Week Film Fest.

If you’re at all interested, consider dropping in as it’s an inexpensive night out which will present important issues and create interesting conversations both at the event and afterwards.
