The Problem With Myro: a video essay



I’ve noticed the sustainability space becoming exceeding capitalized upon and I think it bears deconstructing. I hope that as consumers, we can learn from Myro’s failures and begin to hold companies more accountable for their environmental impact, as well as ourselves and our own impact.

In the video, I mentioned and used footage from Shelbizleee and Lavendaire as sort of examples of “what not to do”. This wasn’t meant to disparage their efforts in any way, and Shelbizleee actually addressed a lot of my points in later videos. Their videos still hold a lot of valuable information, and I’ve linked them below.
