Emmy-nominated filmmaker Krishnan Vasudevan joins us to view his film and learn about the environmental and economic costs of recycling incorrectly. The Wrong Bin explores trash in NYC, where 36% of what is sent to landfills is recyclable. The lessons learned in New York can be applied anywhere. Come see this film about what is happening in our neighbor state, and join in a discussion about the solutions with the filmmaker. This program is cosponsored by the Wallingford Recyclers.

David Suzuki is a world-renowned scientist and environmental activist who asks, “How much is enough? Are there no limits? One species, us, is single-handedly altering the planet. We have become a force of nature.”
Suzuki weaves past, present and future, maintaining that a burgeoning population plundering the planet’s resources, combined with fossil fuel burning is altering the earth’s biosphere in irrevocable ways. Does the human brain that drives the destruction also contain the solution?
Please join us to view the film and share in the subsequent discussion. Wallingford residents Scott Grey and Sonja Wulff will moderate this event.
