Beginning with the Industrial Revolution, advances in technological innovation lead to large population booms, which have lead to intense harvesting of environmental resources faster than they can be regenerated. More waste builds up as more resources are burned through, and pollutants from that waste infect the very earth we use for resources.
But hope can be found in the form of sustainable living. Whether it’s something small like recycling or going meat-free for a day, the film covers the various forms of sustainability on an individual level. Everything we do affects the planet.
This short documentary was directed, filmed, produced and stars Dylan D'Haeze who was 14 at the time of filming.
