The true cost of Amazon by Our Changing Climate
Static Preview

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I take on Amazon. Specifically, I look at how Amazon prime shipping and delivery services impact the environment and the workers who rush to fulfill such tight deadlines. Looking at shipping services like Amazon Flex and investigating the conditions in Amazon warehouses I try to answer the question of what does Amazon really cost? In short, Amazon's consistent need to speed to fulfill prime one-day and two-day ship orders means high environmental impacts and crushing loads on workers both in the warehouse and out for delivery. So, when you purchase an Amazon product the burden of that cheap price tag lands on workers and the environment.

Doing Our Part to Curb Plastic Waste in Pakistan
Static Preview

On August 14 this year (2019 the Government of Pakistan celebrated two independence days: one commemorating the nation's freedom for 72 years. The other? Freedom from single-use plastic bags. Pakistan has joined 128 countries in the fight against plastic pollution, and it started with Islamabad's pilot project banning the use of plastic bags in the capital city. Moving towards environmental sustainability is one of the World Bank’s key commitments to the Government of Pakistan and to ourselves, and so we decided to walk the talk. For the past year, the World Bank Islamabad campus has been free of single-use plastic.

Why we should rethink Zero Waste by Our Changing Climate
Static Preview

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at the difficulties surrounding the Zero Waste lifestyle, especially for beginners. Specifically, I look at how the Zero Waste lifestyle is a good solution to individual waste and single-use items for those that are able, but for beginners, the extremes of Zero Waste can be daunting. So, Zero Waste alternatives are essential for those (or beginners) interested in creating meaningful and lasting change within their system. At the end of the day, Zero Waste can be effective but it can also be daunting and turn many people off exploring their relationship with waste.

Too Much Stuff [Remastered]

Please help support future videos: patreon.com/sustainablehuman

This is a remastered version of the video with updated broll that I think really helps bring the message to life.

Please share!
