Cleaning up Everest

is a great idea that

must now be recycled.

"All the mountaineers have desire to climb Mount Everest once in a lifetime."

"In 1962, there were 6,000 visitors in Nepal. Recently, they were more than 1,000,000."

"Kathmandu produces 750 tons of waste per day, 70% are thrown in the wild."

Bringing darker records to light

Is Everest still the tallest rubbish container in the world?

It's in 2000 that Everest winner, Sir Edmund Hillary, talks about the highest landfill in the world. Along with Messner, famous for completing the first solo ascent of Mount Everest, Hillary meets with the King of Nepal to carry out the need for change, but without substantial result.

 

In the following years, many cleaning initiatives have taken place on the Mount Everest to reduce the waste left by tourists on the climbing routes. However, pollution has now been flooding the valleys and villages below.

 

In the documentary EVEREST GREEN, Jean-Michel Jorda raised awareness of the waste issue at the top of Everest. Now, one question remains: what should we do with all the garbage once collected from the mountain?

The upcoming documentary film, Everest Recycling, will tackle the waste management concerns on the famous mountain and its valleys, following the installation of an incinerator.

 

Release in December, 2022.
