Educate yourself – Must-see documentaries

We hear about it everywhere nowadays, but it’s not exactly easy to get a full grasp on the importance of sustainability and how big a role it plays in our present world, especially when starting this journey.

That’s why it’s important to gain as much information as possible in order to not only educate yourself, but also realize that change is urgently needed, and it starts with everyone.
Us Goat gangsters are big documentary fans – This type of film gives us a unique experience every time, because we are never the same after watching one. They make us acquire new points of view, wake up a part of our brain that might have been asleep and encourage us to get out there and do our best.

And speaking of life changing, try starting with one of these important documentaries we listed for you.

Before The Flood

Leonardo Di Caprio. Who else could be Romeo AND a UN Embassador in the same life? Swoon swoon… Anyway, this award winning documentary features Leo on a round the world journey in order to personally see and understand the problems and, most importantly, solutions to the current climate change situation. It hits us with alarming facts on global warming as well as social inequality. Your eyes will open! Oh, and it’s available on Netflix.

Cowspiracy

Released in 2014, and produced by… Yes, Leo di Caprio again (can you tell we are fans?), Cowspiracy has been shifting paradigms ever since. It takes a totally different approach on global warming, questioning large NGO’s as to why they purposely omit data that proves the livestock industry is to blame for the vast majority of the destruction of the environment, and investigates the reason why major environmental organizations are afraid of discussing the issue. Not the easiest, but a much necessary watch. It’s also available on Netflix.

What The Health

From the makers of Cowspiracy, What the Health brings shocking and very inconvenient truths about what we have been taught to eat and its consequences. It looks into the link between animal-based foods and the pharmaceutical industry to serious diseases such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease. Not only that, it goes further into it, unveiling a disturbing connection that reaches the medical industry, health organizations and even the government.

The True Cost

It’s a sad fact that cheap labour is still a very real and much present problem in our society. Our comfortable and privileged lives sometimes make it easy for us to oversee such reality – Who are the people making our high street clothes? The True Cost brings not only that to attention, but also the environmental consequences of the fashion industry and mass consumerism. It will make you think twice before going shopping. If not, then it should! And yep, you guessed it, it’s also available on Netflix.

Home

Filmed entirely in impressive aerial shots, Home is a visual show-stopper. But it’s also much more than that, it will sensitize and educate us all about the fragility of our planet, showing that beauty and life are very much connected. It aims to warn us that despite all the evils inflicted on Earth over the years by humanity, there is still a chance to save our home.
