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.

More Human Destruction of the Planet

In part it's about some of our most polluted rivers such as in Xintang, China; Yamuna, Delhi, India; Dhaka, Bangladesh; Citarum, Jakarta, Indonesia. Normally we think of sewage, plastics, industrial waste, but this adds clothing leather/textile manufacturing & how much it contributes to the morass. Even with what we wear, whether at work or casually, it gives more support to the KISS ethos of minimalism in life - wear less; use recycled more. My main concern w/this doc was the reliance upon subjective evaluation of the harm - looks bad, smells bad. The producers should have arranged to have samples taken when visiting each site & have them analyzed as to source chemical composition & quantity. Such objectivity substantiates action against the offenders.

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.
