In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I take on Amazon. Specifically, I look at how Amazon prime shipping and delivery services impact the environment and the workers who rush to fulfill such tight deadlines. Looking at shipping services like Amazon Flex and investigating the conditions in Amazon warehouses I try to answer the question of what does Amazon really cost? In short, Amazon's consistent need to speed to fulfill prime one-day and two-day ship orders means high environmental impacts and crushing loads on workers both in the warehouse and out for delivery. So, when you purchase an Amazon product the burden of that cheap price tag lands on workers and the environment.

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at the difficulties surrounding the Zero Waste lifestyle, especially for beginners. Specifically, I look at how the Zero Waste lifestyle is a good solution to individual waste and single-use items for those that are able, but for beginners, the extremes of Zero Waste can be daunting. So, Zero Waste alternatives are essential for those (or beginners) interested in creating meaningful and lasting change within their system. At the end of the day, Zero Waste can be effective but it can also be daunting and turn many people off exploring their relationship with waste.
On the 7th of July 2017, 122 countries voted in favour of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Countries that don’t have nuclear weapons but live under their threat voted for a ban. Without the knowledge of most of their citizens, the governments of the world’s nuclear powers didn’t vote, and yet the ban went ahead. Something new is happening. This documentary film about efforts to bring a nuclear weapon ban treaty into international law and the role of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, ICAN, is told through the voices of leading activists from several different organizations and countries and the president of the negotiating conference. This 56 minute documentary film takes the viewer through a brief history of the bomb and the anti-nuclear activism that has pushed to eliminate them ever since their invention. It moves into a consideration of the humanitarian initiative that successfully challenged the dominant security narrative and the historic steps taken since 2010 to turn the treaty from a dream into a reality. Finally, the film shows what can be done by anyone to help bring the treaty into force and to stigmatise nuclear weapons until they are finally eradicated. Extracts of fourteen interviews are woven into the story that will leave you feeling inspired

Try going a day without plastic. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy for plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.
Restoring our Waters is the story of how people around the country care about The Chesapeake Bay and are turning this caring into citizen action at the State (Maryland) and Federal level.
Like most of the bodies of water on the planet, it is the engine of a regional economy important and is a National Treasure, worthy of protection and deserving of the iconic status of the Florida Everglades, the Great Lakes, or the Mighty Mississippi. Americans who care about clean water, economic security, and national history are asked to sign petition, and then contact their legislators to demonstrate how important the Chesapeake is to our nation. To participate visit the Restoring Our Waters Website.
