She's right... We are so concerned with buying new things that we can't see past thier function or thier durability. Help the planet if you have to buy, buy something your going to use for several years.

This is a stylish and strong video - it shows really well the extent to which our consumption habits have been trained by profit-driven companies.

Even at 20 minutes long, it's engaging and really suitable to be shown to classes of school children that might not be so aware of the culture of shopping.

An older audience might feel slightly patronised (not that I did) especially if they're the type that do like to shop, get real happiness from it and haven't learnt about the cumulative effects.

That's the thing - it's not any one person's fault that consumptive societies are destroying quality of life for the majority of people in the world, but the remedy can only be done person by person. How can you convince people not to shop so much without making them doubt who they are?!
