A Family's Journey Towards Sustainability

The Film

Zero Time to Waste follows one family’s journey of living zero-waste in the middle of San Diego—a social movement they hope to see grow as they inspire small changes in their local community. By growing their own food, not producing any waste, choosing alternative transportation, and saving $18,000 annually in the process—everyday tasks are more intentional, and they’re happier for it. This compelling portrait is a hopeful reimagining of what it looks like to be conscious citizens in the midst of daunting statistics and the peak of consumer culture.
