(March, 2010) The Story of Bottled Water tells the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.
(April, 2015) An apology letter to future generations. “I think I speak for the rest of us when I say, sorry, sorry we left you our mess of a planet. Sorry that we were too caught up in our own doings to do something. Sorry we listened to people who made excuses, to do nothing. I hope you forgive us…”
(February, 2016) This excerpt of A Pale Blue Dot was inspired by an image taken by Voyager 1 in 1990.

The result is this moving and powerful monologue by Carl Sagan, delightfully illustrated by Order Productions, Ltd.
