XINING, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Filming of a three-part documentary has begun in Zadoi, the source of one of China's largest rivers in northwest China's Qinghai province.

The documentary, Jackie Chan's Green Heroes, is a joint project by the action movie star and the National Geographic Partners LLC. The series will feature green innovation to inspire and educate a new generation of green action heroes, Chan said.

The first hero Chan found was Arthur Huang, 38, a structural engineer from National Geographic Society of Emerging Explorers. Huang is a specialist in post-consumer trash recycling. In the first episode, they will show Trashpresso, a mobile waste recycling machine.

The series will be aired on the National Geographic channel in April 2018.

Located in a wide valley, Zadoi is administered by Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yushu. It is the source of Lancang (Mekong) river at an average altitude of about 4,000 above sea level.

It has practiced trash sorting for many years, but as the population is growing, the county faces challenges in recycling plastic waste.
