We have our national traveler. He has probably been in every corners of the world. He claims that since we have our natural fossil fuels, we should to use them because it is cheaper for us. It's probably better for our planet than implementing modern technology, we don't know what the consequences may be at the future. Electric cars use energy from large power plants, and in the future we will have problems with storing electric batteries.
But if he is far from big cities and far from civilisation like inside Amazonian forest, he is both sad and angry that there is more and more plastics and sheet metal.
And besides, this man creates wonderful travel documentaries: "Barefoot across the World" and he doesn't like if the government wants to give too many restrictions in society's behavior.
You may think I'm going against present trend, but did you anywhere consider a different opinion?

I would recommend a documentary film about Hayao Miyazaki, which delves into his filmmaking process and provides insight into his artistic style and life perspectives. If you enjoy watching animation, especially Ghibli movies, you won't get bored.

The last documentary film that I watched was 'The Tinder Swindler,' and I am willing to recommend it. The narrative is about a guy who swindles women out of money by telling them about his love and temporary difficulties through the modern dating application, Tinder.

I would recommend watching the "Human" documentary to everyone. It is so impressive and shows us the lives, fears, sufferings, joys, and values of people from different parts of the world, and what it means to be human in general. If you haven't seen the "Human", you should.

I am not a fan of documentary films, therfore I cannot recommend any films. However, after reading this article I really think that the documantary films are meaningful, they record the fact and promp the audience to think about the real situation. I will start to watch some documentary films :)

My all-time favourite documentary is "Our Planet". Not only did I find this documentary super helpful, but I also came to the realization that we, humans, are badly damaging our planet. Besides this all, what I love about this documentary is the accent of the narrator. So, if you are looking for a documentary about how we, humans, are changing the nature and the species in it, I highly recommend "Our Planet" documentary.

Hi! I want to share a short story about my father. Every time he sees a bottle, whether at the beach or in the neighborhood, he picks it up. Once he has collected some, he puts them into the recycling cointainer, day after day, month after month, and year after year. I think his paragon serves as an example each of us can follow.

It means a lot to me to hear this. If you could tell him, thank him for his work. Thank him in my place and please support him. He is an example for the rest of our society and as you say yourself, I will follow him in his work. From now on I will do my best to stop the bike every now and then and pick up some cans, according to the reasoning that if everyone picks up something, there will be so much less waste already.

It is absolutely wonderful to learn there are some amazing people like your father who take upon this task of keeping our environment clean as their personal responsibility. I would absolutely go to the cinema to watch this documentary! Thank you for sharing it too, so we can all be inspired and do our part.
