Picking Up America
A film by Michael Burke & Marie Wicht.
In October 2010, two young filmmakers visited Pick Up America while they cleared litter along the roads in Southern Ohio. The documentary shows the perseverance of four young activists who plan to perform the nation's first contiguous coast-to-coast roadside cleanup, in an effort to make a statement about the USA's throwaway mentality and disposable lifestyle. Along the route, the Pick Up Artists speak at schools, community centers, and provide online multimedia content to inspire a transition toward zero waste.
