Why you should watch Before The Flood:
"Before the Flood" is a powerful documentary that not only presents the dire consequences of climate change but also provides solutions and calls to action. It is a wake-up call for individuals and policymakers alike to take immediate action to address the pressing issue of climate change. Additionally, it features a diverse range of perspectives and voices, from scientists to politicians to grassroots activists, making it a comprehensive and engaging watch for anyone interested in sustainability and environmental issues.
On a personal note, we found the confirmation reassuring that becoming vegan or at least vegetarian is one of the most important things we can do for the planet. We've made this change about 1 year ago and are happy to stick with it. Also the documentary shows the influence and the importance that celebrities have and need to have on the change we need to make as a society. Would this documentary have the same impact if it was not made by Leonardo DiCaprio?
As Honest Basics we're happy to be a part of the sustainability movement. However small our impact may be. And also we're happy to confirm that all our products are vegan!
