For thirty days, I followed my friend Rob Greenfield as he wore every single piece of trash he created for an entire month. Most people never think twice about their trash, once it’s in the garbage can, it’s out of sight, out of mind. Through the project we created an unforgettable and shocking visual of the trash that we create everyday, and inspired all to drastically reduce the trash we create.

In the 1990s, Bali experienced its first reclamation project, which drastically changed the landscapes and livelihoods of Serangan Island destroying its turtle population, mangroves and coral reef. Pulau Serangan borders the gulf of Benoa and is still deserted today with no signs of development... Will Bali repeat history and make the same mistake?
In August 2013, the biggest development project to-date was announced, a multi-million dollar investment plan to build artificial islands in South Bali under the name of Benoa Reclamation Project. With 50 more 800+ rooms hotels predicted to be constructed by 2017 and Indonesia's President urging to increase tourism numbers on the island, the Balinese smiles and its unique culture is under serious threat. This is part one of a three part series in promotion of the film The Reclamation.
