Water. I would guess that it’s the most urgent need for almost everyone on this planet. An average person can last just three days without water, which is not long if you ask me. Maybe it’s because of it’s importance, because there are many current problems concerning water. Scarcity, floods and pollution. And even within these categories, there are a number of different problems when it comes to water. Today I want to share with you a documentary that highlights a number of these problems: Tapped.Lees “Documentary about bottled water: Tapped” verder
There’s a subject I’ve been learning more about the past years, which is not really that relevant for me personally. It’s not really something I come in contact with, since it’s forbidden where I live, The Netherlands. However, I do like to learn about global challenges and problems. One opposed solution to the global food crisis are genetically modified organisms. Today I’d like to tell you my point of view about it.

World problems, for most of us western people they are surreal. We see the issues in the news and in newspapers all the time. Poverty, child labor, climate change, chemical pollution, you name it. Yet, this barely affects us. We have the best lives we can imagine. And so it’s hard to see different perspectives. And that’s where this show comes in today: shifting perspectives. That’s why I share with you today: Bloed, Zweet en Luxeproblemen. Lees “Tv-show about the impact of your purchases: Bloed, Zweet en Luxeproblemen” verder
For me there are multiple reasons as to why I’m vegan. Animal rights, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, climate change, inefficiency, personal health and even more. So when someone asks why I’m vegan this is always difficult, there are so many reasons! I try to explain it briefly but when I say something as: ‘for my health’, people look at me as if I’m crazy. So, you’re saying animal foods are bad for our health? I tell them yes and from today on I can refer to a documentary about te subject as well: The Game Changers.

In contradiction to last week’s post, it’s time for something positive again. Well, maybe positive isn’t the right word, but beautiful is. It’s time for something beautiful. Because gosh, I’ve waited too long to share this documentary with you (don’t I say that every time?). This series came out on Netflix in April 2019. I’ve binge watched it as soon as it came out and I know a lot of people around me have too. I’m talking about the Netflix documentary series Our Planet.

It’s holiday season and that means reading a lot of books and watching documentaries for me personally. I love both! Last week I shared a book so today it is time for a documentary I think you should see. This one is one that will make you smile from ear to ear, it’s mostly positive! It’s about a dream life I think, a life in which others are helped and I think that’s the most beautiful and meaningful life. I’ll tell you more about Life in the Doghouse.
Since I shared this week that I’ve started a Youtube channel of my own, I thought it’d be a great moment to highlight other Youtube accounts. Unfortunately for you, but fortunately for my personal time, I only have two Youtube account which I’m addicted to. I’ve seen all their videos, so I can recommend these with intention! Here are my two favorite Youtube accounts. Lees “My favorite Youtube channels: Sofie Senden and The Messy Minimalist” verder
A few weeks ago I told you that I had won tickets for a movie: The Biggest Little Farm. Before I went to see the film, I was already so excited to go and see this movie! Past Monday was the day, I saw the movie. I seriously loved it! This movies tells the story about my wildest dream, a family that builds a farm. Not just a regular farm as is most common today, but a farm that alines with nature. Lees “Film about sustainable farming: The Biggest Little Farm” verder
It’s time for a new documentary. And this documentary is so beautiful to me, since it’s about something I’m really passionate about: food. More specifically: it’s about local food. Knowing where your food comes from, who has put so much effort into growing it and what’s the story behind the food. The following documentary has all that: Sustainable.

Watching this documentary was not planned (I just have a list on my phone and I watch whichever I feel like watching), but the timing seemed to perfect in the end. This year, me and boyfriend did a bet. We bet not go to MacDonalds (or any other fast food company in The Netherlands, like KFC or Burger King) for a full year! So, this documentary was a great one to watch to keep me motivated: I’m talking about SuperSize Me. Lees “Must Watch: SuperSize Me” verder
