RiverBlue infiltrates one of the world’s most pollutive industries: fashion. This film examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. The film will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.

A Plastic Ocean is a documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. In this film, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and Ocean ambassadors go on a mission to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean. The results will astound viewers–just as it did our adventurers–who captured never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.
