Trashed looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste. The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current 'waste industry'.

Oh-Me! Oh-My! - With the human population now totaling a staggering 7 billion (and growing daily) - Is there any hope for man's (and woman's) future on this overcrowded and polluted planet?

"Trashed" is a real "horror-story-of-a-documentary". This presentation is truly an eye-opener that takes a close-up look at the ever-expanding problem of man's (and woman's) garbage and how there appears to be no sensible solution in sight in which to solve this dilemma.

Filmed at different locations around the world - "Trashed" certainly doesn't paint a very pretty picture or offer any positive outlook for man (and woman) and his (and her) legacy of litter.

very good documentary - whatever you would like to produce and whichever technology are you about to adapt, think again about the waste these maybe responsible for environmental harm and your health

What a sad situation we find ourselves in. Excellent documentary. How many people do not know how bad the trashing of the planet is? Watch this documentary; it's not an easy watch.

It is nice to see an actor taking up a cause that might seem so trivial yet is so vital in its need to be addressed. Hats off to Jeremy Irons.
