Seeding Change: The Power of Conscious Commerce
Seeding Change: The Power of Conscious Commerce is the story about a group of young social entrepreneurs who started a company to sustainably harvest açaí berries in the Brazilian Amazon, and who became part of a movement of purpose-driven companies looking to change the world through an alternative economic model. By measuring success not only financially but also socially and environmentally, businesses practicing “conscious commerce” offer solutions to some of today’s most pressing social and environmental issues.
Seeding Change: The Power of Conscious Commerce award-winning documentary empowers viewers to be part of the solution by “voting with their dollars” and supporting brands and products that align with their values and make positive changes for the planet.
“I’ve been fortunate with my work to witness the power of sustainability documentaries and how film can change paradigms and even history. Seeding Change, is no doubt my most challenging in that it seeks solutions to the biggest problem humanity has ever faced, the climate crisis. However, there is a beautifully simple solution right at our fingertips. Empowering consumers to purchase from those companies that have solutions built into their business models is how we can make immediate and positive change for our planet.” ~ RICHARD YELLAND Director & Producer
