Top Ten Sustainable Videos

Here's my top ten list of sustainability videos in no particular order.  I tried to throw in some videos of:

  • Sustainability visionaries (Amory Lovins, Bill McKibben, William McDonough, Thomas Friedman, etc.)
  • A few good commercials from corporations and organizations (IBM, Repower America)
  • A video of what the largest retailer in the world (Wal-Mart) and the greatest fighting force (U.S. Army - links to videos)

The talks that are over 10 minutes long come from TED (technology, education, and design) and are well worth it.  This is not an exhaustive list, so please let me know of other videos that really inspire you to live more sustainably.

Ray Anderson: The business logic of Sustainability

IBM: Treehugger Commercial

Amory Lovins: We must win the oil endgame

William McDonough: The wisdom of designing Cradle to Cradle

Thomas Friedman: Energy and Global Warming

Yvon Chouinard: 1 percent for the planet and green marketing

Bill McKibben: Deep Economy - Rethinking Consumption

Repower America: Do Right

Wal Mart: the power to sustainably change business

How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

U.S. Army

- I had trouble getting the videos at the below link to work, but it is great to see the U.S. Army realize the virtues of sustainability!
