Two steps - Recipes For Disaster

In 2008 me and some of my friends went to a lecture about climate change where they showed us this movie called Recipes For Disaster and I think that was a real wakeup call for me! I've always been aware of climate change and recycled everything I can but there are still so many things to learn and to do better.

It's a documentary directed by John Webster about his own environmental ideology, a personal film about climate change where the Webster family minimies the usage of oil for a year but at the same time they try to maintain a middle-class living standard (they live in Espoo, Finland). Really entertaining and partly very funny movie as well, I really recommend watching it, it takes only an hour anyways. It's in English and there are subtitles in English for the Finnish parts.

Here's the Youtube trailer of Recipes For Disaster and below a link to the full movie in Vimeo, so glad I found it because it's not in Youtube!
