Can fashion save the planet? Through awareness, we evolve.

Ethical uniform supplier Little Yellow Bird brings River Blue to New Zealand. All profits from the screenings go towards funding educational projects and families of garment workers in India.

Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, RIVERBLUE spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.

Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favourite iconic products (denim jeans) has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival.

RIVERBLUE brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.
