Nov. Film – Riverblue

The Watershed Center is showing the impact of fast fashion in a free, first Sunday environmental film screening, November 5, 2017 at 1pm. Learn about the industry that is causing insta-pollution, insta-impact, insta-destruction on our rivers through toxic chemical waste. As noted in the film: “There is a joke in China. They say you can predict the “it” color for the season by looking at the color of the river”

Can fashion save the planet? Through awareness, we evolve.

Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, RIVERBLUE spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary 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 chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. RIVERBLUE brings awareness to the destruction of a some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.

Help propel positive change and protect the world’s rivers.
