There is some really fascinating watching and reading below.
Have a watch. Have a read. And tell us what you think.
Seaspiracy is the ground-breaking Netflix Original documentary which exposes the fishing industry’s impact on the world’s oceans.
This one is a bit personal and part of our journey to doing what we do! There really is no such thing as a sustainable fishery! I haven’t eaten fish since watching this and I was a real fish lover.
The Game Changers
Meeting visionary scientists and top athletes, a UFC fighter embarks on a quest to find the optimal diet for human performance and health.
This one had a big impact on me. Watching it after Seaspiracy, it tipped me over the edge to becoming vegetarian. And not only for the reason discussed at the end of the programme!
The Story of Plastic
From ‘The Story of Stuff Project’, this film is well worth a watch when you can find a screening.
Industry worldwide has done an incredible job of hiding sheltering us from the impacts that plastic packaging has had and will have on our environment and ecosystems. This is a real eye-opener.
The Blue Zones, by Dan Buettner
Dan Buettner walks us through the recognised ‘Blue Zones’ around the World and investigates what makes these communities particularly healthy, happy and long-living.
Some summaries of this book, and even the sub-title, suggest if we read this and learn the lessons of the Blue Zones, we can live longer. But actually there are so many lessons in here, it’s a lot more than that.

Dales Vince is a British green energy industrialist. A former new age traveller, he now owns Ecotricity, the green energy company. Dale is also chair and major shareholder Forest Green Rovers, newly promoted into EFL League and will be playing Exeter and Plymouth in the upcoming season.
Quick to read, the book showcases a real can-do attitude. We can make great things happen by going green with our consumption and use of energy, transport and food.
Thanks very much to Susie for the recommendation!
