LAKE PLACID The Green Circle has partnered with the Lake Placid Environmental Club at the Lake Placid High School to show the documentary "Trashed" on Friday, May 9 at 7 p.m. in the Lake Placid High School Library. The Green Circle is also showing "Trashed" in Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake the following week. These are as follows: Thursday, May 15 at 7 p.m. in the Goff-Nelson Memorial Library on Lake Street in Tupper Lake and Friday, May 16 at 7 p.m. in the Saranac Lake Free Library. All three showings are free and open to the public. "We have scheduled this movie in three different locations, each on a different night with the intention of making it convenient for you and your friends to attend" said Elaine Holmlund, member of the Green Circle. Do you ever wonder where your garbage goes? Do you want to recycle but are not sure how? Do you think there must be a better way? "Trashed" is a provocative investigation of one of the fastest growing industries in North America. The garbage business. The film examines a fundamental element of modern American culture the disposal of what our society defines as "waste." The LPEC mission is to inform students and the community about environmental issues and educate them on measures that they personally can take towards a more sustainable future. This year they are sending teams to the regional Envirothon. In past years students helped establish a paper recycling program for the school and have sponsored bottle drives.
