It takes a lot to be so into a movie, a book, magazine, whatever it may be and think “I can make a difference”. It takes, even more, to go out and be the change you wish to see in the world. So while I’ve lightly danced around the subject of environmentalism I want to share movies that made me passionate on such a subject. All the movies I’ll be mentioning are available on Netflix or YouTube, so go ahead and binge away!
Zero Waste is a scary word, but when I think about it I imagine a future where the ice caps are no longer melting, plastic bags aren’t being trashed into our oceans, and we make ourselves accountable for the pain we’ve caused to the planet. Call me a dreamer, but I believe this is possible. While we could talk about all the ways this is not just about the consumers but the companies who take advantage of our innocence in the hopes of bigger profits, a small difference can be made by making simple switches to daily life.
