One Earth Film Festival: “UseLess” Premier Screening

March 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

CHICAGO-AREA PREMIERE.  110 Main St, Park Ridge, IL 60068

FILM DESCRIPTION: In the documentary “UseLess,” the filmmakers try to find out why food and fashion waste has become a pressing social and environmental problem, and what we can do to change it. The documentary is seen through the eyes of a young Icelandic mother who is trying to understand the issues and change her ways. Interviews with experts, designers, activists, and producers shed light on the problem as well as offer many solutions to the audience.
