5 documentaries to watch that will push you to be more responsible
This month our Pursuit focus is on being more responsible. We believe that knowledge is power. And with regards to protecting and being more responsible stewards of the planet, the more we know about our impact and what we can do to change and reverse the effects, the better. While we certainly don't know everything, we are dedicated to becoming more responsible and we hope you join us. In an effort to do so, we've put together a list of must-see documentaries filled with credible and compelling content that will hopefully motivate us all to do our part, big or small, each day. Without further ado, here are our top 5 suggestions.
