Netflix is one of the first places I go when I’m ready to dig deep into learning something new. I am a huge fan of the documentaries section! Here are the 10 Netflix documentaries on sustainability and wellness that are at the top of my list.
Not gonna lie, there are few things I enjoy more on a blustery winter day than cozying up on the couch with my husband to watch a Netflix documentary.
These days, I have been gravitating toward just about anything in the realm of environment and social good. Just last week, Josh and I dug into the perils of the garment industry with “The True Cost,” a documentary film that explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet.
It absolutely blew me away.
Listed below are the ten Netflix documentaries on sustainability that are at the very top of my list. I’ve included the trailers so you can get a better idea of what each film is like. So break out that zero waste popcorn, grab a blanket, and learn something new about the world we live in.
I hope you enjoy them!
Top 10 Netflix Documentaries on Sustainability
1) The True Cost (2015)
2) Planet Earth (2006)
3) Cowspiracy (2014)
I firmly believe that watching “Cowspiracy” should be a requirement for every environmentalist. Rather than taking a purely ‘save the animals’ stance on animal agriculture, “Cowspiracy” digs deep into its environmental impact as the leading cause of carbon emissions, global warming, deforestation, and just about everything else. Not gonna lie, this film challenged me to the point that I’m transitioning to a plant-based diet. Watch it!
4) Happy (2011)
5) More Than Honey (2012)
6) Forks Over Knives (2011)
7) No Impact Man (2009)
8) The 11th Hour (2007)
9) Minimalism (2016)
10) Fed Up (2014)
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to get down to business with these documentaries! And I’d love to know: Which stick out to you? Have you seen any of these before? Share in the comments.
