4 Eco-Conscious Quarantine Binge-Watches…And Some Honourable Mentions

Now more than ever, there is an emphasis on staying home during this quarantine. If you’re like me, you’re on week five of WFH. So, if you’re looking for new ways to keep busy, try adding some of these into your daily routine – reading an article or book, cooking, baking, working out, keeping in touch with friends and family through video chat apps and watching new movies and shows. Spoiler alert, I’m here to recommend some to you!

As the weather becomes nicer, it will be harder and harder to stay indoors, and that’s where these films come in handy. I want to provide some recommendations for eco-conscious films to watch during your quarantine. Since we all have a responsibility to do our job and stay apart, these films should keep you entertained while you’re safely nestled on your couch. Although I highly recommend getting up in-between your binge sessions to get some fresh air and maybe some food!

There are many categories of eco-conscious films. There are films about water, oil, cars, nature, wildlife, you name it, it probably exists. My hope is that you have an interest in one of these areas and find a film that catches your eye. Whether you fully embrace the eco-friendly lifestyle, want to learn more about being eco-conscious, or simply just to watch a good film, this list should have something for everyone.
