The 11th Hour

My husband and I had a hot date night on Saturday - we went to the city (San Francisco) to get dinner and see the 11th Hour (see http://www.11thhouraction.com/). Even if you are already very green, the movie was very informative - it was full of depressing figures that I did not know. For instance, did you know that 90% of the big fish in the ocean are gone? Did you know that for every truckload of new product that goes to market, 32 truckloads go to the landfills? Staggering!

Anyway, I highly recommend the film. My husband is business guy and was truly inspired by the latter part of the movie which offers a glimpse into the new business of sustainable living - reducing consumption and offering consumers new green options for things that they need.

To top the night off, one of the film's producers was in attendance and held a Q&A after the movie. Go see it. Remember that we vote with our dollars and by seeing this movie, you will be sending the message that you care about the world we live in.
