Which has more impact?  What you do?  Or, what you buy?   At the PEW Center for Climate Changer's Energy Efficiency Conference held in Chicago last April, one of the plenary session speakers stated a remarkable statistic.  Only 8% of what you DO is sustainable -- the other 92% is in the supply chain -- in other words, what you BUY.

This video was created by 18-year old Matt Bendo and 17-year old KJ Proulx from Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
