Environmental justice! That is the new mantra for the Bronx. From sewage treatment plants to prisons, whatever other affluent New York communities didn’t want in their backyard, the Bronx got stuck with it. With a lot of work and little fanfare, the Bronx is fighting back, turning their harsh urban environment green.
This feature length documentary follows three members of the Sustainable South Bronx “BEST” academy (Bronx Environmental Stewardship Training) as they train for living wage, green collar jobs – fighting to improve their lives and their community in the process.
