Enviro Videos and Visuals

A variety of DVDs, visuals and free online videos about environmental concerns provide information that is accessible, entertaining, sobering, stimulating and informative.

  • Breathing Earth: A beautifully designed site which provides a simulation of carbon emissions, birth rate and death rate in different countries around the planet.

  • Free Range Studios: Promoting 'creativity with a conscience', Free Range studios sell creative ideas to help build a more just and sustainable world. They are driven by the belief that the right stories told in revolutionary ways can transform society.

  • The Story of Cap and Trade: If you've heard about cap and trade, but aren't sure how it works (or who benefits), this short online video is worth a look! The Story of Cap & Trade is a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the leading climate solution discussed at Copenhagen and on Capitol Hill. Host Annie Leonard introduces the energy traders and Wall Street financiers at the heart of this scheme and reveals the "devils in the details" in current cap and trade proposals: free permits to big polluters, fake offsets and distraction from what's really required to tackle the climate crisis. Why Peter Barnes thinks she is right. (See also: climate change.)

  • The Story of Stuff: An excellent 20-minute video on the links between our production and consumption patterns. From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.

  • Stargazing: For those who love the night sky and stargazing, this is a great resource for finding out how to spot constellations, times of sunrise and sunset, 

  • Phases of the moon: A handy approximate guide to moon phases.
