What you get when you sit down with Rob Stewart is pretty much what you get when you watch his movie, Revolution. It’s the same. He’s just a guy trying to get the word out that we’re doomed.
What you don’t get when you sit down with Rob Stewart is the same thing you don’t get when you watch his movie: guilt, brow-beaten and shamed into doing good things for the planet.
A self-admitted hater of environmental documentaries, I sat down to chat with Rob about why that is. He was lovely, genuine and passionate about his cause, just like he is in the film. It’s very refreshing and it’s why he’s likely to actually make a difference. He gives you hope, not shame, that there’s still time and we can all make changes that will not lead us to our seemingly inevitable doom.
Take some time today to watch us chat, then head to Google and start educating yourself about the issues and what you can actually do. Remember that if one person stops buying a product from a company who does business in a way that kills the planet, it’s a tiny drop in the ocean. If everyone does it, that company makes changes. Tell your friends. Start a movement and, most of all, see this movie.
(Note: I feel like I should tell you this: Rob is Canadian. So go ahead and be un-Canadian — allow yourself just a single moment of patriotic pride.)
