Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons pulls up his wellies to cross littered beaches in Lebanon, inspect prison compost heaps in Yorkshire and investigate a state-of-the-art recycling plant in San Francisco on his voyage of discovery about the garbage we create, every hour of every day, across the planet.

Journeying from Iceland to Indonesia, Irons speaks to scientists, politicians and ordinary citizens whose health and livelihoods have been affected by pollution. From individuals who have changed their lives to produce almost no waste, to an increase in anti-waste legislation, to an entire city that has gone waste-free, he discovers that change is not only essential, but happening.

Followed by a discussion with John Wargo, Marian Chertow, Mike Biddle, and CJ May.
