  Known for chilling documentaries like Brothers Keeper and Paradise Lost , documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger is back with another nail biting story with Crude:  The Real Price of Oil , now available on DVD and Netflix Watch Instantly.  Crude is a real-life high stakes legal drama, set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures as the film takes us inside the infamous “Amazon Chernobyl” case.  The landmark case takes place in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador, pitting 30,000 indigenous and colonial rainforest dwellers against the U.S. oil giant Chevron.

  Simple shoes are 100% sustainable and ethically made using materials like recycled carpet padding, cork, bamboo, hemp, organic cotton, recycled PET plastic (soda/water bottles), 100% post-consumer recycled paper, recycled inner tubes, coconut shells, recycled wood and eco-certified suede and leather (they make vegan shoes too).  Have we mentioned that they’re super comfortable and stylish?  We love our Simple boots, booties and sneakers because they look cute and feel great to both our feet and our eco-hearts.  Another plus?  They’re affordable too.  Simple’s been making sustainable and ethical shoes since long before green was sexy, so they know what they’re doing and we love how they’re doing it.  Check out the newest styles for men, women and kids on their website and find a retailer near you.
