At this point, we're all aware of climate crisis and the devastating impact it's having on the planet, from forest fires to flooding and extinction. Although it can be overwhelming to think about, it's so important that we all have a good understanding of why climate change is happening, so that we can make better decisions that'll (hopefully) benefit us in the future. While these documentaries outline the problems that humans are creating, they also offer solutions and practical advice about what you can do to help. We hope you find them useful - we defintely did!

A note from us...
We understand that the fashion industry is a contributor to the climate crisis. That's why we're taking steps to become more sustainable. We've started replacing the fabrics we use with recycled fibres, so that these materials are reused, rather than being sent to landfill. You can read more about our sustainability mission here.
