Must See Documentaries

 

Happy Earth Day!

 

I recently have been on a documentary kick.  Watching them not making them.  With Earth Day here I was thirsting for more knowledge in the realm of Eco-Friendly living, simplifying, and our food.   I must tell you there are some wonderfully thought-provoking documentaries out there.  Some are, however, shocking and even maddening.  I suggest that you be really ready to watch some of the food related ones and put the kiddos to bed first.

Click on the movie title to view the trailer.

  •  Food, Inc. official website.  I waited a long time to watch this because I knew it would force me to make immediate changes.  It Did!  This is about the food industries effects on our health and the environment.
  • The Future of FoodThe relationship between agriculture, big business, and government.
  • Super Size Me – A man who sets out to show the health risks of eating nothing but McDonald’s for a month.
  • I am going to watch Food Matters and Tapped next.  Food Matters is related to food and our health.  Tapped is about the bottled water industry and it’s effects on our environment and our health.

Happy watching!  You won’t need munchies to watch these, trust me!

    Thats a good list. Tapped was excellent. My hubby and I made a lot of changes to our choices On water based on that film.

    I enjoyed Capitalism: A Love Story by Michael Moore. He is a very good director/filmmaker.
