“Most of us don’t realize there is a war is going on, the war between Consumer Power and Corporate Power. The weapons aren’t bullets and bombs, but money. We think we are winning this war because we get to buy all this cool stuff anytime we want, but there is a hidden cost: animal rights abuse, human rights abuse, and the destruction of our environment.
Corporations spin us lies and we believe them. So we don’t fight back. Instead, we work for them, and then give them back that hard earned money. The Corporations profit twice, and the earth and it’s inhabitants suffer a little bit more. Every time we spend money we are voting for our future, and our children’s future. Choose wisely. “

Movie nights are a great way to meet up with others and discuss aspects of living out sustainable alternatives in a consumer culture. Previously the Ethical Consumer Group has hosted monthly movie nights in people’s homes. This involved sharing a meal and screening a movie with some discussion following.
Out of this we have formed a movie library.
Movies have been chosen for their specific relevance to issues connected with our everyday purchases, or issues that affect our world and our understanding of our place in the world.
Many are available for borrowing by ECG members to show in their home with a group of friends.
