Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home is a documentary about how the family household has become one of the most ferocious environmental predators of our time.

Concerned for the future of his son, writer and director Andrew Nisker takes an average urban family, the McDonalds, and asks them to keep every scrap of garbage that they create for three months. He then takes them on a journey to find out where it all goes and what it’s doing to the world.

From organic waste to the stuff they flush down the potty, the plastic bags they use to the water they drink out of bottles, the air pollution they create when transporting the kids around, to using lights at Christmas, the McDonalds discover that for every action there is a reaction that affects them and the entire planet.

When the McDonald family agreed to participate in Andrew Nisker’s project about how much garbage a typical family in Toronto produces, they ended up with an eye-opening documentary called Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home. Here’s one way to celebrate Earth Day (April 22): get the film and hold a screening party in your home.

The film is an eyeopener and will make you think about what you’re leaving out for curbside pickup. Reducing is the new recycling.
