REUSE Because You Can’t Recycle The Planet.
This film isn’t about our waste problem. It’s about solutions. And they are everywhere!

We live in a challenging time. Climate change and mass consumption is threatening our planet’s existence. Excessive extraction of natural resources has created immeasurable waste and pollution. This issue is complicated and imminent. While recognition and awareness is important, direct action is by far the most effective. But traditional recycling is not enough. The reuse mission offers a more sustainable solution that everyone can be a part of. REUSE Because You Can’t Recycle The Planet follows Reuse Pro Alex Eaves’ cross-country adventure to the 48 contiguous U.S. states. On his journey, he finds endless reuse solutions for our waste problem that are not only sustainable, but many of which are easy and fun And he learns just how reuse truly benefits people, planet, and wallet.

There will be a discussion afterwards with the filmmaker Alex Eaves, Box Truck Tiny House creator Derek Diedricksen, as well as representatives from the Town’s Zero Waste Committee and the Recycling Coordinator, available to talk about efforts the Town makes to encourage reuse.
Box Truck Tiny House tours are happening before the film showing: 4-7 PM at the Robbins Library Parking Lot, 700 Mass Ave., also free and open to the public.
