Thursday, April 22nd, 2021 by

With World Earth Day on April 22, there’s never been a better time to get to know the big blue marble we call home. We’ve put together a list of sustainability-focused documentaries available through Fetch that will make you fall in love with Mother Earth and inspire a fight for her survival.

While not every title on this list is an easy watch, each has a message worthy of attention – and what better way to soak it all in than with a bucket of popcorn?  

The Biggest Little Farm

Rating: PG

Not many LA-residents would move out of the city to become farmers but, for John and Molly Chester, it’s a different story (and an important one at that). They are on a misson to rediscover traditional farming methods that nurture, rather than ravage, the land. Worth the watch for the friendship between a cow and rooster alone. Available to buy or rent now in the Fetch Movie Store.


Rating: G

An optimistic guide to saving the world that will leave you rethinking the way we live, while still hopeful for the future. The positive and can-go attitude of Australian environmentalist Damon Gameau is uplifting and infectious as he discusses solar power, car ownership, new farming models, empowering girls, and more.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

 Before The Flood

Rating: M

Leonardo Di Caprio first learnt of climate change in an encounter with Al Gore in 2000. In the years that followed, an interest became a passion, leading the actor to both produce and present Before the Flood. It’s a hard-hitting documentary that follows Di Caprio over the globe as he meets with leading scientists, activists, and world leaders to discuss the climate crisis and what we can do to stop it.

 David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet

Rating: PG

Hands up everyone with a childhood memory of watching David Attenborough doco with their family on a Sunday night. The man everyone wishes was their grandad is back – but this time his message is serious. Deforestation, overpopulation, and fossil fuels are threatening the world Attenborough has spent decades teaching us to love. Now, he’s here to show us how to save it.
