Reverse consumerism

Human are now living an un-sustainable life. We are too much dependent on fossil fuel which we know it will run out. We are emitting too much green-house gas that we know our planet is suffering. We are creating too much waste that land fills are running out. We are spending money we don't have on presents we don't rate to give to someone we don't like.

Somehow, someone, somewhere needs to do something to reverse this trend.

Boingboing has a post about the Compact Group,

About 50 teachers, engineers, executives and other professionals in the Bay Area have made a vow to not buy anything new in 2006 -- except food, health and safety items and underwear.

Can teachers help to spread this message? Will our kids understand the importance of saving our planet? Will they be able to resist the advertising?

Let's start from ourselves first.
