MOTHER OF THE EARTH looks at Hayedeh Shirzadi and her husband's attempts to put an end to the dumping and burial of urban garbage in their Iranian city. Due to their hard work and ingenuity, 100% of the city of Kermanshah's garbage is now recycled and the bio waste is made into organic fertilizers. Shirzadi studied recycling in Germany. She returned to Iran to clean up the environment, to stop the destruction of arable land, and to curb air and water pollution.
