For the moment, forget about what man has done to the environment and focus on what the environment can do for man and the planet. Inspired by nature, Sustainable World Media highlights ingenious ways that nature makes changes and sustains where we live. The format focuses around Permaculture, Soil, Rainwater Harvesting, Organic Farming, Food Forests and Rangeland Management.
Although this production company has a small following compared to the seven million followers of Facebook’s “I Love F**king Science”, what is important about Sustainable World Media is that it highlights people who are actively participating with the environment and taking steps. Since the main thrust is permaculture, their first film The Soil Solution takes an in-depth look at our soil possibly being the solution for climate change. Other fun posts include “Mushrooms cleaning up radioactive waste” and Santa Barbara Aquaponics growing vegetables and raising fish in a parking lot! The videos are on YouTube as well.
