River Blue offers awareness, but no real solution

This movie offers awareness about the environmental impact on waterways of the jeans and leather industry. It's a good movie if you want to become aware of the impact of the clothing industry, but I wouldn't recommend it if you are an educated environmentalist.

There isn't a solid research behind the movie (or at least, it doesn't show). Unfortunately, there is a lack of real and sustainable solutions. The last part of the movie covers some new technology to make your jeans look used, but they are in no way "eco-friendly" solutions.

The movie offers great images and it makes people aware of the jeans and leather production impact on waterways, but no more. In terms of offering a more comprehensive portrait of the environmental impact of the clothing industry, I would recommend True Cost over that one.

Life Changing

Thank you to everyone who worked on this breath taking documentary. Seeing the effects of the fashion industry on our planet is truly disgusting and heart breaking. But knowing that there are people who care and are finding ways to revolutionize the industry gives me hope that our rivers and waterways can still be saved. The next pair of blue jeans I buy will be from a manufacturer who cares about our planet.

A must see! 10/10!

RiverBlue does a fantastic job of exposing the deadly pollution caused by the fashion industry. It contains insightful interviews from the leading experts which support the eye-opening images.

The second half of the film provides hope and more importantly it offers ways to become engaged. The filmmakers are also continuing to fight for positive change through the fashion heroes website ensuring that the movement lives on (fashionheroes.eco).

A great balance of awareness and solutions!

A really important message expertly told, bravo!
