Sustainability is a loaded word, and one that's hard to really grasp. Thankfully new documentaries that make green issues more digestible are coming out faster than you can say Netflix. The following films, all recently released and most of which are available online, are some of the best and brightest in the category. They all offer a dynamic mix of sweeping nature shots and sobering statistics to remind us just how much is at stake in the fight against climate change.
Some of today's leading environmentalists cite powerful documentaries like An Inconvenient Truth and Food Inc. as their catalysts for their action, so who knows, you just may be pressing play on a lifetime of activism.
