My friend Yusef has a video for kids that he created called Charlie Trash Truck that's pretty cool. He just embedded this little piece for me that explains the 4 R's (I love that let it rot is one of them). I'm always of the mind that there is a fifth, REFUSE, but technically that's part of reduce I guess. Good little piece though and if you want to check Charlie out, his site is here.
I was working on a TV show yesterday and during rehearsal one of the actors pulled a bottle of water out of the fridge and proceeded to hold it during the scene. We started to set up the shot and I went over to the director, a like minded enviro-head who is concerned about the future of the planet. I mentioned to him that since he was in the directors seat, he had the chance to make a difference. He asked what I was talking about and I pointed out that the actress in question could hold a water bottle and perpetuate the myth that this is a viable way to go in upper class america (the societal section this scene was set in) or he could have her have a glass of water instead. I pointed out that by having the water bottle he was being part of something and by not having it he was stepping out of the problem.
