Documentaries we love
Here’s some of our favourite docos for your viewing pleasure.
These are an awesome way to get a quick overview of some of the big issues, and can be a great way to introduce ideas to others.
Just be warned that you can slip into the documentary black hole (I know I did) where it’s easy to get overwhelmed. I reckon it’s great to start by watching one or two and then take a break and focus on what you can do to take action.
The True Cost: Brilliant insight into the impact of the fashion industry.
2040: Explores what the future would look like by the year 2040.
An Inconvenient Sequel: 10 years after the first film, Al Gore is back with some mind blowing insight into the climate crisis.
A Plastic Ocean: Explores the fragile state of our oceans and the alarming truths about the consequences of our lifestyle.
Minimalism: Examines minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life.
The Story of Stuff: A super accessible series of short videos which simply summarise the big issues.
Just Eat it: A fascinating insight into the impact of food waste and food rescue.
Podcasts we’re into
I’m a huge fan of podcasts, they help me learn while I’m doing other things like driving or exercising. I love the way you can pick and mix topics and skip around depending on what mood you’re in.
Here’s my top three to get you started.
How to Save the World: Covers a broad range of topics and manages to strike a perfect balance between being informed and being accessible.
Eco Me Eco You: A super down to earth chat style podcast.
Sustainababble: A lighthearted approach to over 160 different topics!
