River Blue is the backstage of the fashion industry and the dirty secrets behind their manufacturing and their fashions show and their not so glamour representations.
This environmental abuse is portraited in this documentary narrated by Jason Presley. After watching this movie, you will reconsider your fashion purchases.

Kiss The Ground Film
Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies.

This movie is positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible – to solve humanity’s greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species future.

Straws are one of the single-use items contributing to landfills and the estimated 8.5 million metric tons of plastic waste entering seas annually, taking decades to hundreds of years to break down to microscopic levels now pervasive in bottled and tap water, soils, and even the air we’re breathing.
After watching this you will be looking for straw alternatives and here they are: glass straws, metal straws, paper straws, bamboo straws, silicone straws, or strawless, better for your lip wrinkles!
