Fistful of Rubbish. A sustainable Western documentary

A Western environmental documentary, "A Fistful of Rubbish", is set in the Tabernas Desert in Spain - Europe's only desert. 

An area known for being the backdrop of many famous Western films, sadly is being trashed. But now, a group of locals are forming a posse and taking things into their own hands. Literally.
