5 Short Eco-Videos to Watch on Your Break

Crash CourseYou have five more minutes on break and you've already caught up on your Snapchats and tweets, what's left to do? Why not watch some amusing eco-related videos in those last minutes before returning to your desk? Some are funny, artistic or even educational, but they are all worth a watch.




Green Police - If you've ever wanted to tackle someone for using styrofoam or buying bottled water in bulk then this Green Police video was made for you. Sure, in the end it turns out to be a car ad, but for those of use concerned about waste and saving energy this is a chance to live a little vicariously.


UCLA Men's Basketball Sustainability - If you're a sports fan (or a Bruin at heart) then this video will leave you inspired. Focusing on the basketball team's commitment to sustainability, the short blend sports metaphors with real action from the team.


Green Tunnel - You have hours left ahead of you and all you can think about is escaping. Fear not, this short chronicle of the Appalachian Trail will not only appease your wanderlust (if only for a second), but it's trancelike music will help with any midday stress.


Recycle Animation - If you're a fan of stop motion or creative approaches to communicating ideas then you'll like this look at recycling. We start with a soda can, and proceed through various items until we get to the end, a very different kind of can.


Crash Course: 5 Human Impacts on the Environment - If you prefer to spend your break learning something new then make some time for this Crash Course video explaining the human impact on the environment. Hank Green sprinkles the talk with amusing comments, but never strays from trying to educated viewers as much as possible.
