Learn How to Forest Bathe and Recycle Right At This Free Virtual Eco-Festival

Forest bathing

If you’re bored of Netflix, Stan, Binge or any of the other streaming services you’re subscribed to and are looking for something new to watch, we suggest you check out the Eco-Living Festival online, which is packed full of virtual events, not to mention has a few free docos you can watch, too.

From September 20 to October 24, the virtual event will be holding more than 30 virtual workshops on topics including recycling (October 13), buying organic food (October 14), de-cluttering (October 17), climate change (October 18) and, probably the session we’re most looking forward to, forest bathing (October 6).

In the de-cluttering workshop, you’ll learn how to create an intentional wardrobe and sustainably let go of clothes you don’t wear, while the forest bathing workshop promises to let you experience the healing power of reconnecting with yourself and the natural world, making note that mindfully connecting with nature is increasingly being shown to have beneficial effects on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Also on the program are three film discussions for docos you can stream for free through the festival; I Am Greta which tells the story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, Honeyland, about the last female bee hunter in Europe, and 2040, which shows what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us.

You can rent those flicks for free here. Once rented, you then have up to 14 days to watch them.
