Resources

Ever wonder where I get my information, or want to know who inspires me? I’ll update this list as I find new resources I think you’ll find useful.

Documentaries/Short Films

Cowspiracy – Explores the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
Blackfish – Tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multi-billion dollar sea-park industry.
Forks Over Knives – Examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
The Story of Stuff – From water to electronics to bottled water, The Story of Stuff Project put together several short films to teach you some very important lessons.
Just Eat It – A film about food waste and food rescue. Will make you think twice about throwing those leftovers in the trash.
