Documentary filmmaker and activist Andrew Nisker is at it again. On June 1 the director of Garbage! The revolution starts at home previewed his new documentary Chemerical at the Cinemambiente environmental film festival in Turin, Italy. As the film’s promotional website states, “We’re confident you’ll be inspired to take an inventory of all your toxic cleaners, personal care products and cosmetics and rid your lives of them completely!” The filmmaker is inviting viewers of the film to report to his website the toxic products they’ve gotten rid of (6500 as of early June and counting). Chemerical profiles an ordinary suburban family as they agree to replace all the commercial chemical cleaning and other products under their sinks and in their closets with safer homemade versions (e.g., vinegar, water, baking soda and simple perfume-free soaps). They learn they can get their home, clothes and bodies cleaner and save a ton of money, all the while better protecting their health and the environment. This is a great film to purchase online and screen in communities trying to reduce household hazardous materials and wastes.
