    Interested in going vegetarian, vegan, or plant-based? Check out the resources below from members of the SI team. Most of us eat a full or partial plant-based diet and these resources helped spark curiosity or improve our diets over time. Remember, you don't have to go "cold turkey" to make a difference in your health or carbon emissions! Start small and build.

    Watched Chasing Coral which was excellent.  A documentary on the journey of several men trying documenting the loss of our corals and what they are doing to try and mend them.  Try and watch it, was really sad and will make you want to do something about it.

    I'm looking for new documentaries to watch related to the environment. Any suggestions?

    If anyone is looking for something interesting but calming to have on in the background (the silence of remote work is hard for me) I recommend Night on Earth, a Netflix docuseries that chronicles wildlife using night vision tech. It's a new angle on a familiar genre.
