514 Undiscovered

Saison 1

6. Waste-reduction & Homeless

This week on 514 Undiscovered, Montréal’s waste-reduction community teaches Alexa and Giordano how to recycle fashion items, shop package free and rummage for groceries in the city’s “Magic Dumpster." Later, the hosts walk the streets with the homeless to learn about their daily routines and survival strategies.

About the show

514 Undiscovered captures the vibrance of Montréal’s most obscure communities. The city is renowned for its eclectic makeup, yet we seldom hear about the inner workings of its underground groups. Each week, show hosts Alexa Everett and Giordano Cescutti immerse themselves into two diverse communities to capture a behind-the-scenes look and to dispel common misconceptions. With the help from members of each group, Alexa and Giordano learn how to dumpster dive, ghost-hunt, perform burlesque and discuss death at a local cafe. 514 Undiscovered breaks taboos and highlights inclusivity, body positivity and feminism.
