Everblue's Movie Guide to Sustainability

Thu, 2013-01-31 10:27

Sustainability - it’s a term everyone is talking about. From corporations to the federal government, our culture is quickly adopting sustainability as a way of life. Additionally, a number of environmentally-conscious movies and documentaries will be released to the public in the near future, further allowing sustainability to gain traction in the mainstream.

From climate change and renewable energy to water consumption and plastic obsessions, documentaries continue to highlight modern-day obstacles to our survival; and while the obstacles are unique and diverse, sustainability always seems to hold the solutions.

In order to continue the push toward sustainability, Everblue has developed a list of already-released movies that focused on sustainable issues. This guide is here to provide our students with supplemental learning, as well as to inform the public about the growing trend in sustainability. So here you go!
