Toxic Pizza - Turn-around in Donetsk

Posted: 21 Aug 2000

Toxic Pizza - Turn-around in Donetsk (1997) was commissioned to provide viewers in the Ukraine and other former Soviet Republics with a vision of a sustainable future.

The message of the film is that an investment in cleaner technologies and know-how can bring economic and environmental benefits but that
investment will not be easy to come by. The first step is to convince local people that a wrecked environment is not always the inevitable price for industrial development.
