This post is long overdue, but thanks to Jo, in our Facebook Group, I’m now putting it together!
“I’m looking for an inspiring zero-waste/minimalism documentary or YouTube videos to watch. I’m looking to try and get my manbeast on board with shenanigans.”
Well I love a few zero waste shenanigans, so here’s what we came up with:
FILMS and DOCUMENTARIES
I suggested Trashed with Jeremy Irons because an hour or so into the movie, you’ll see yours truly taking Jeremy shopping for a naked cucumber! The film outlines the issues of waste and sustainability across the world and asks what we can do about it.
Mission Blue is a feature documentary about legendary oceanographer, marine biologist, environmentalist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Sylvia Earle, and her campaign to create a global network of protected marine sanctuaries.
The Story of Stuff
You can watch this 20 minute fast-paced movie for free. The Story of Stuff takes a look at our consumption patterns and exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.
Watch the entire movie for free right now:
Clean Bin Project
Partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem of waste.
YOU TUBE CHANNELS
Simply Greener Mummy
Run by Kate from London, her Simply Greener Mummy channel shows her family journey to minimalism, zero waste and ethical, sustainable living – one step at a time.
Ree runs Fort Negrita. She describes herself as an Earth advocate with passion for zero-waste, traveling, self-reliance, and regenerative energy and waste.
The Darling M
Margaret’s tagline is “loving a finite planet to infinity.” On her channel she navigates environmental & personal sustainability; and asks “is a plastic-free, zero waste, vegan life the way to go?”
The minimalist ninja
The Minimalist Ninja is all about living with less and enjoying life to the fullest. Her goal is to spread the word about minimalism and inspire others to live a simple, zero waste, life.
Sea & Silva
Ever since Hayley became aware of the connection between consumerism & its effect on the rest of the world she’s made it a priority to educate herself about the changes she can make that make a positive difference.
My minimalist baby
My minimalist baby describes itself as follows “Minimalism, zero waste and living frugally with a family on a 20 acre permaculture property in rural Victoria, Australia.”
If you read through to the end, here’s a special gift for you. My 2 1/2 minutes of fame with Jeremy Irons, talking a load of trash:
What about you – what documentaries or YouTube channels do you recommend for people who are interested in a zero waste lifestyle?
