What to Watch on Waterbear this week

What to Watch on Waterbear this week


Waterbear Network is a free online film-streaming service, which has partnered with more than 80 charities and NGOs around the world — will shine a spotlight on the most critical issues facing the planet today. 


ReDress the Future

Since all new clothing, no matter how well it is made, will always have some sort of impact on the planet, simply buying less is the most responsible action an individual can take. We all know, however, that even the most well made clothes don’t last forever, as well as the fact that not only do our tastes change but so do our bodies, so sometimes what we have in our wardrobes just doesn’t quite cut it. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean we need to resort to buying brand new clothes.

This episode will explore not only the burgeoning second hand clothing industry, in particular new apps that allow people to buy and sell used clothing from their own home, but the more traditional concept of repairing or altering our own well-loved items of clothing. Because when it comes to sustainable fashion, forget buying something new, let’s just make the most of what we already have!


The True Cost

The True Cost is a ground­break­ing doc­u­men­tary film that pulls back the cur­tain on an untold sto­ry and asks us to con­sid­er, who real­ly pays the price for our clothing?

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, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, 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.


Refugia

Through a pos­i­tive lens, Liana Cor­nell, acti­vates her inescapable urge to do more, and gains a deep­er under­stand­ing of the cur­rent crises in nature, and the peo­ple devot­ed to pre­vent­ing them.

A Refugia is a place of refuge where species survive through crisis.

More than ever, now is the time to recognize and support those committed to the protection and preservation of these Refugia.

It is in the everyday that we find our true heroes now, those who are focused on the betterment of our place here on earth.

Through a positive lens, Liana Cornell, activates her inescapable urge to do more, and gains a deeper understanding of the current crises in nature, and the people devoted to preventing them.

From the perspective of the five elements present in every living thing – earth, air, fire, water, spirit – Refugia reveals the good work undertaken by unsung heroes, communities and companies, dedicated to nurturing nature, and preserving these pockets of protection.

Cinematically stunning, bold, personal and evocative, Refugia illuminates their rewarding stories, and inspires us to realize that we are the solution. When we react with action, we unite in a compassionate, global collective creating continuing, constructive change.

To do so is in our nature… and our nature is in us.
