Curbside recycling has returned to New York City, but NYC residents
produce some 13,000 tons of garbage a day, which is then exported and
travels to and through poor communities in other states. How can we
reduce our waste and create a more sustainable NYC?

Gone Tomorrow: The Hidden Life of Garbage illustrates the links
between modern industrial production, consumer culture and our
disposable lifestyle. With only 5% of the world’s population, the U.S.
consumes more than a quarter of the planet’s resources. Serious yet
wryly humorous, the film’s images portray the unintentional beauty of
production, waste, and the stories our culture tells us about both.

Film (19 min) to be followed by a discussion with:

+ Heather Rogers, the film’s writer/director and a Brooklyn resident

+ Robin Nagle, NYU anthropologist and author of the forthcoming
tentatively titled book: We all Wear Green: Flinging Trash in NYC.

Recycle This! is a grassroots activist group which works creatively
around NYC waste issues and meets in Park Slope.
