Netflix, Disney plus, Primevideo, HBO Max or Hulu, just some examples of streaming services. Nowadays you can watch so many things online. There are too many streaming services that you don’t know what to choose anymore. So much choice, but limited time to watch.
At least, in my case. I like to do many things, and I prefer to spend my time on healthy habits and other things that I like to do, instead of watching something. And if I watch something, I prefer to see a documentary so I can also learn from it. I recently discovered something that is completely matching me; sustainable, documentaries, locally-told stories, eco-travel and short episodes. I am talking about WaterBear. On their website is mentioned:
Not so long ago, a group of passionate people got together to use storytelling as a tool to make a difference. That team created WaterBear, the first interactive streaming platform dedicated to the future of our planet. Whatever you feel passionately about in the world of climate action, biodiversity, sustainability, community, diversity and more, WaterBear provides access to award-winning and inspirational content that empowers members to dive deeper, learn more and take action.
WaterBear members control what content they want to watch, when they want it, with no ads and with one simple sign up – all for free, in all English speaking countries, on mobile app and web. WaterBear is a big fan of documentaries, locally-told stories, NGO campaigns, on-the-ground grassroot outreach, volunteering, eco-travel, sustainable products and much more; and members can find all of this on the WaterBear platform at the touch of a button.We’re always looking to help members find the next story to make a difference – so sign in, lean forward and start taking action.
Till now I have only seen a few documentaries, but I am planning to watch more. The good thing is that it doesn’t cost too much time. If you have 10 minutes that you want to spend on watching something, you can already find a documentary. It’s nice because these are real and also inspiring stories. And you learn from it. What I also like is that you can donate, volunteer, sign petitions, share and engage with issues that matter to Wtacyou. You can just share on your social media what you have watched and share it with the world. It gives you the feeling that you are more connected and even can make a difference by watching something.
Have you already seen something on WaterBear? What would you recommend to others? I am very curious. Let me know.
