Join us for a Free Screening of the Film, Racing to Zero, April 3, 2017

The next film in The Elements: An Annual Environment Film SeriesRacing to Zero, will be shown on April 3, 2017, at Middlesex Community College Founders Hall Pavilion (map, directions and public transportation information). The screening will begin at 7 pm, but we invite people to come at 6:30 pm for BYO dinner and conversation. As always, the film is free of charge and open to the public.  
Racing To Zero is about San Francisco’s efforts to achieve zero waste by 2020. As indicated on the film's website, this quick-moving, upbeat documentary presents new solutions to the global problem of waste. By substituting the word RESOURCE for the word GARBAGE, a culture can be transformed, and a new wealth of industries can emerge. Three years ago the mayor of San Francisco pledged to achieve zero waste by 2020. Racing To Zero tracks the City’s waste stream diversion tactics and presents innovative new solutions to waste...documenting a surprising, engaging and inspiring race to zero.

We welcome everyone to stay after the film for an informal post-film discussion led by Kim O'Rourke, Middletown's Recycling Coordinator.  

We hope you can join us! Please phone our office at 860-346-3282 for more information.
