Breaking the Plastic Wave (follow-up webinar)
The Pew Charitable Trusts and SYSTEMIQ present the global virtual launch of the new report "Breaking the Plastic Wave: A Comprehensive Assessment of Pathways Towards Stopping Ocean Plastic Pollution" The report can be downloaded at: https://pew.org/2OVcbhE or bit.ly/3fQyrF2. This event will provide a deep-dive discussion on the key findings, and how industry, government and civil society can work together to substantially reduce projected ocean plastic pollution flows. The findings are based on a first-of-its kind model of the global plastics system, which estimates increases in plastic pollution under a business as usual scenario and examines the economic, environmental and social implications of six different strategies to address the problem.

Farmer's Footprint | Regeneration : The Beginning
This film series explores scientific findings from ZACH BUSH MD and soil health expert Dr. Allen Williams of Soil Health Consultants, LLC that identify the root cause of the current chronic disease epidemic and its connection to chemically dependent agricultural practices. This film features the trials, learnings and victories of the four generation Breitkreutz family from Stoney Creek Farm transitioning from conventional farming to regenerative agriculture in Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Using conventional methods they saw their soils degrade and their input costs rise every year. Transitioning to regenerative practices has helped their row cropping operation and significantly reduced their input cost for their cattle. This film tells the story of how they did it.

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.
