Woohoo!

We are thrilled to have surpassed our fundraising target and would like to thank everyone who has so generously contributed so far. Our campaign closes 1st February so there’s still time to join in on the fun! We’ll use any funds raised over our target to make this doco even bigger and better and to help us spread its messages far and wide so that more people can learn how to live waste free in 2014.

In 2014, we’re heading into uncharted territory – a territory with no plastic bags, no food packaging, no disposable coffee cups, no little plastic produce bags, no wasted carrot tops or mouldy leftovers. We’re journeying towards ZERO WASTE and are hosting a zero waste event in March to prove it can be done. Our short film will share our journey towards zero waste and showcase the wonderful people we meet along the way that help us reduce, reuse, repair and recycle our way into waste-free bliss. The film will inspire people to stand up, take notice and start their own journey towards zero waste.

As a nation, we’re pretty big wasters. We chuck out 1 in every 5 bags of groceries we buy. About $8 billion worth of food is thrown out every year. Worldwide we throw out half the food we grow. It’s a criminal waste of precious resources and farmer labour and it has a devastating effect on the environment, not to mention the social impact.

And what about the packaging? Plastic-wrapped food is everywhere - in fact, plastic has come to infiltrate every realm of our lives. As a result, more than 5 million pieces of plastic enter our oceans each and every day, killing over 1 million birds and marine life each year.

Our short film will show how food and plastic waste can be avoided, drawing attention to much of the unnecessary packaging that is choking our lives, oceans and animals. It will also profile the environmental and social issues associated with our wasteful ways.

The film will give people an intimate insight into the challenges and triumphs of going zero waste.
We will launch the film at an event in March, and post-event the film will be shared through our Table Talk blog, on social media and through our 2014 Give a Fork! campaign – illustrating how people can host their own zero-waste events, and ultimately, lifestyles.

How The Funds Will Be Used

We’ve got the ideas, we’ve got the talent, now we need the funds to get this short film off our notepads and into production. We’ll use the money raised to pay for all the production costs, including paying our awesome videographer to create a cracking short film that will jolt people into positive action.
What else is cool?

We’re part of the All at Once community, a social action network connecting non-profits with people who want to become active in their local and world community. As a part of this, Jack Johnson’s charity (yes, Jack Johnson the singer) is matching donations contributed to us from now through to December 31st (up to a total of US$2500, pending approval by CAFAmerica)! Make a contribution right now and your money will be doubled by the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation!


Collectively, individual actions create global change. Your actions, your voice, and your choices, all have a huge impact. www.AllAtOnce.org

We’re a small team with a small budget, but we have the zeal to produce a film that’ll make even the biggest waste wally rethink their squandering ways – all we need is your belief and support!
