Sustainability Film Series: RiverBlue

March 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

The Institute on the Environment, the Bell Museum, University Services Office of Sustainability and University Dining Services host a Sustainability Film Series from February to May. Films are selected to reflect issues that resonate with University students, faculty and staff.

The second film in this series, RiverBlue, is presented with the Weaver’s Guild of Minnesota.

Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. RiverBlue brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.

Watch the trailer! More info can be found here.
