The film series — Small Changes, Big Picture — is designed to encourage the public to make small changes at home when it comes to water usage. Beginning with a film that explains the concept of managing water in the environment, subsequent films cover pressing issues affecting water such as plastic and chemical pollution, and the climate crisis.

Commissioned by the Environment Agency, which has previously relied on written word to communicate with the public, the aim of the films is to get its message across more effectively, with each film showcasing the small but impactful changes people can make in order to make a difference to their environment.
The films feature projects in Kent, Essex, Worcestershire, Yorkshire, Cornwall, Cambridgeshire, Bristol, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside, with the home and workplace shoots taking place in Lancashire; all showcasing the small but impactful changes people can make at home and at work to make a difference to their environment.
Lancashire-based production company Glasgows were tasked with creating the films, which feature on Environment Agency TV’s YouTube channel.
“The films support the audience in understanding how taking care of water at a local level, even following the simplest of measures, can make a real difference now and in the future,” commented Glasgows’ Producer, Louise Jones.
The key message across the series is that, even through small actions, everyone can play their own important part in being the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than they found it.
