Change the Standard – Music Video Series

For our song Change the Standard director Ivana Smudja and we created a music video combined with 5 mini documentaries. The documentaries show people and organizations changing the standard in their field of work towards more sustainable, fair trade and organic industries and society. The series is proof that entrepreneurs like these, many with a background rooted in punk rock and DIY ethics, can really make a change! Featuring Tuinderij Bietenrood, fairtrademerch, Just Like Your Mom, Nevel Artisan Ales and Velocity Fietskoeriers
