An Inconvenient Truth, Seven Worlds One Planet, Cowspiracy… just a few of the (sometimes controversial) documentaries that have reached large audiences, shifting peoples’ perspective of the environment and nature in one way or another!
I’ve recently started watching Netflix’s latest docuseries Down To Earth. Featuring Zac Efron, it takes a look at different sustainable and eco-friendly ways of life across the world. Whether Zac is your particular cup of tea or not, it feels like the start of a new era of documentaries aimed at inspiring people (in this case, particularly focusing on young people) to take action.
It got me wondering - what TV shows, or documentaries, have had a particular impact on you or inspired you to change something (even if small!) about your life, with a view to living more sustainably?
It’d be interesting to know your recommendations of what to watch!
Personally, Blue Planet II and the images of plastic pollution in the ocean really inspired me to cut down on my use of plastic - in particular of bags and water bottles. I now use a particular set of fabric bags in the supermarkets for my fruit/veg, and canvas bags to carry my shop home.
