Around the world: amping up emission pledges and hopeful Netflix watches
Climate change has been on everyone’s minds in the last few weeks with COP26 coming to an end. If you’re wondering how we can pivot our mindsets for 2022 or you’re feeling the weight of climate anxiety, scroll to the bottom of our summary for an introduction to WaterBear and the three series we count as ‘must watches’ this season.
Here’s what has caught our eyes this week.
3 things to watch on Waterbear first
1. The True Cost
The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.
2. Not a Pet
Not A Pet looks at the illegal pet trade and the role social media plays in the parading and trading of exotic animals online.
3. Mother of the Sea
Mother of the Sea is a tale that virtually every Inuit from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic knows in some form or another. It’s a "living story", which means it isn't about the past -- this story is taking place right now. Updated with plastic trash and climate change, telling this tale does more than scare children away from the dangerous ice -- it warns us all about the perils of disrespecting Mother Nature.
