Jackie Chan’s Green Heroes Premieres on National Geographic Channels Network Asia
By NHNZ
24 April 2018

Jackie Chan’s Green Heroes recently premiered in South East Asia on 18 April and in Taiwan and China on 22 April, coinciding with Earth Day. This one hour special is produced by NHNZ as a commission for National Geographic Channels Network Asia.

Featuring world famous actor Jackie Chan and multi-talented entrepreneur Arthur Huang, Jackie Chan’s Green Heroes is an inspirational environmental story with some of China’s most dramatic scenery as a backdrop. Arthur and Jackie are on a mission to show the world what the new face of recycling can look like with the help of their co-creation: Trashpresso. Trashpresso is a unique factory on wheels, which can turn waste plastic into multi-use tiles on-site – even at the top of the world – the Tibetan Plateau.

Jackie Chan’s Green Heroes focuses on motivating younger generations to change the way humanity approaches environmental challenges such as plastic waste. Under Jackie’s supervision, the local children revel in helping operate the Trashpresso, including sorting rubbish and adding plastic to this revolutionary machine.

“Jackie is genuinely passionate about environmental protection and together with Arthur’s practical expertise; innovative inventions like the Trashpresso are making a positive impact on remote communities. NHNZ is a company that has been telling environmental stories for the last 40 years and we also are genuinely committed to helping others make sustainable choices. We’re incredibly proud to be able to help tell Jackie and Arthur’s story for NGC,” says NHNZ Managing Director, Kyle Murdoch.

Filming took place in October and November, 2017. Producer David Hay was impressed by the spectacular locations and felt privileged to have the opportunity to work with Jackie Chan. “It was inspirational to see someone as famous as Jackie behave so humbly. Every time we were between takes he was picking up trash. A girl asked him for an autograph and as she walked away she was picking up trash. That’s the power of the influence he has.”
