This year’s Earth Month is especially important. Following the recent COP26 summit in Glasgow which saw world leaders and representatives gather and agree on a path forward to address the ever worsening climate emergency, now is time to put words into action. This guide will talk you through some of the most talked about films, documentaries, YouTube channels and books that you simply have to check out this Earth Month!

Seaspiracy – Documentary Film (Netflix)

From the same people who created the hugely popular Cowspiracy, Seaspiracy has proven an incredibly popular documentary film amongst Netflix viewers since its release last year. The film examines the detrimental environmental impacts of the fishing industry on our oceans and bodies of water. This documentary advocates the end of fish consumption, highlighting the ways in which our Earth would benefit from a change in this human activity.
