Ocean Documentaries that may just help save the planet.

With the rise of Netflix & various other streaming services, we are seeing more documentaries than ever before. What is also great about this is that of the documentaries, so many are focussed on ways to reduce waste, reduce plastic and help save the planet. We thought we would take a look at just a few of the fantastic ‘docos’ that are out there.
