Tonight | War on Waste on ABC TV and ABC iview

War on Waste on ABC – In the new 3-part series War on Waste passionate planet advocate and prankster Craig Reucassel will once again dive deep into Australia’s waste crisis to uncover the truth about recycling, answer our most-asked waste questions and provide straightforward solutions to help us stem the waste tide.

He’ll set new challenges for corporations, councils and communities that’ll be followed up throughout the series. Learning from the past that little changes can add up to big wins, he’ll conscript entire neighbourhoods as part of a plastic and waste audit, to vividly highlight the problems lurking in our very own homes.

He’ll set-up new public stunts to show the impact of our consumer habits and go undercover with GPS trackers to find out where much of our waste is really going.

Among new waste topics, he’ll investigate the impact of microplastics on our health, and undergo scientific testing to learn the shocking truth about the amount of plastic that’s inside us. He’ll reveal the devastating environmental impact of our obsession with fast fashion; discover the link between food waste and climate change; and seek solutions for the current crisis in soft plastics recycling.

On the flip side, he’ll meet the waste warriors who are rethinking the future of global waste issues, with innovative recycling solutions for our plastic, food and fashion waste.

As we emerge from the pandemic, have we become a better – or worse – waste nation?

Have our governments caught up to community attitudes? And what more can all of us be doing?
